Keeping PrEP and Other HIV Prevention Methods at the Forefront During COVID

July 28th, 2021 | Story


We all recognize COVID-19’s tremendous impact. The COVID-19 pandemic has dealt a heavy blow to health services in Africa, raising worries that some of the continent’s major health challenges could worsen. Since the beginning of the pandemic, worries that key HIV prevention, care, and treatment indicators may decline, as concern about COVID may cause some clients to not come for HIV services. With program adaptations and clever pivots, however, many HIV services have helped keep people living with HIV (PLHIV) and those at risk on prevention methods (including PrEP) and treatment. This series continues to examine things we are learning from the pandemic, highlighting positive impacts we can hold on to, and that can help us to live better lives—silver linings to the dark cloud that COVID-19 has cast.
