A snapshot of PrEP scale-up, registration and resources for France.

  • 6,000-6,500
    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.

  • 3,000-3,500
    Aggregate Target Number of PrEP Users from All Projects (Planned & Ongoing)

    Sum of the targets available at the quarterly data review. National targets put forward by governments may be aspirational and/or indicative of estimated need; or they may be low or non-existent if PrEP is solely available via demonstration projects. For this reason, a calculation of current PrEP users as a percentage of aggregate target will not accurately reflect progress. Additionally, some programs set targets on an annual basis while targets from other programs may extend over multiple years.
