    Estimated Number of Current PrEP Users

    Aggregates numbers reported from demonstration projects, PEPFAR dashboard and program/country reports where available. This is presented as a range due to difficulty in tracking precise numbers and possible double reporting.

Data Updated: April 9, 2021

Drug Registration Status

  • Gilead's Truvada (TDF/FTC) registration
  • Generic versions of TDF/FTC for prevention
    Not submitted

Types of Projects

  • Demonstration projects, which road-test the use of new options in real-world settings—not in a trial site. They have a formal evaluation component that is designed to address specific elements of introduction such as infrastructure needs and ways individuals can integrate it into daily activities.
  • Implementation projects — funded/implementer involvement and investment in some or all steps related to comprehensive introduction that may or may not use government clinics as the primary service delivery point.
  • National level — PrEP availability in government clinics.
