The Global PrEP Learning Network, hosted by MOSAIC, provides national and sub-national ministries, implementing partners, community-based organizations (CBOs), and others with the tools and resources, best practices, and opportunities to learn from others to help to advance PrEP scale-up around the world. Prior to February 2022, the Global PrEP Learning Network was hosted by CHOICE, OPTIONS, EpiC and RISE.

This webinar series features presentations from experts in specific PrEP content areas, lessons learned and insights from implementing partners and government ministries, and perspectives from PrEP users. The series is also a forum for sharing new tools and the latest evidence on specific topics related to PrEP scale-up, ranging from demand creation to continuation.

MOSAIC also collaborates with WHO and UNAIDS to conceptualize, plan, and deliver a schedule of timely webinars on the most salient PrEP-related topics for our audiences. See here for information on WHO’s Global HIV Prevention Coalition Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis Webinar Series and stay tuned for announcements on upcoming events.

  • Building a Brand for PrEP: Positioning PrEP in the Hearts and Minds of Young People
    Thursday, 14 March, 2024- 12pm- 1pm GMT
    With choice of PrEP products on the horizon – including oral PrEP, the PrEP ring, and injectable cabotegravir for PrEP (CAB PrEP) – PrEP marketing and demand generation must evolve with the availability of new PrEP products. Young people, in particular, need PrEP demand generation campaigns tailored to their needs and aspirations. In this webinar, we will hear from teams working to change the landscape of PrEP marketing by applying private sector approaches to brand the PrEP category. We will also hear how they are developing fresh, dynamic, and evidence-informed campaigns to increase PrEP awareness and encourage PrEP use among young people in Africa.

  • New Data, New Opportunities: The expanding evidence base for the PrEP ring
    Wednesday, November 29, 2023
    Three MTN studies – REACH, DELIVER, and B-PROTECTED – recently published critical new data on PrEP ring use among adolescent girls and young women (AGYW), pregnant individuals, and breastfeeding individuals in Africa. All studies offer compelling evidence that the ring is safe for use among these populations. Moreover, the REACH study is the first to examine what happens when AGYW are offered a choice of PrEP products – the ring or oral PrEP – to meet their needs and preferences. In this webinar, we’ll learn more about the results of these three studies and what they mean for national PrEP policies and programs in Africa.

  • Beyond Engagement: Bringing the Power of Young People to PrEP Research and Programs
    Thursday, September 7, 2023
    Expanding access to and uptake of PrEP products among young people, especially adolescent girls and young women, will be key to ending the HIV epidemic. But how do we ensure HIV prevention efforts resonate with and are effective for young millennials and Gen Z? What does meaningful youth engagement in PrEP delivery really mean? In this webinar, we will hear from young people at the forefront of HIV prevention research, advocacy, and programs in East and Southern Africa and the United States. Representatives from MOSAIC’s NextGen Squad and the Chicago-based PrEP4Teens project will describe how they are contributing to PrEP projects in their communities and share promising practices for harnessing the power of young people to shape HIV prevention efforts intended for them.

  • Championing Choice in a Multi-product HIV Prevention Market
    Tuesday, March 14, 2023
    Individuals who need and want PrEP may soon have multiple options for the first time since oral PrEP was introduced in 2012. New products, including the dapivirine vaginal ring and injectable cabotegravir, have been approved in several countries, and more biomedical prevention products are in development. As the catalog of HIV prevention products expands, so too does the conversation about the importance of upholding choice to optimize the benefits for potential PrEP users. In this webinar, we will take a look at the PrEP product pipeline, discuss the role of choice in HIV prevention, and explore what it will take to put choice into practice throughout the health system.

  • Parents, Partners, and Peers: The role of influencers in adolescent girls’ and young women’s PrEP use
    Thursday, December 8, 2022
    We know that adolescent girls and young women live complex lives full of important relationships that shape the decisions they make. Yet too often efforts to generate demand for PrEP fail to reach beyond the individual user to her support system—those trusted people in her life who she leans on when making important choices. But demand generation for PrEP is evolving. In this webinar, we will review the evidence behind the influence of parents, partners, and peers on adolescent girls’ and young women’s decisions and practices related to PrEP use. In a deep dive discussion with intervention designers, we will explore promising interventions for increasing support for PrEP use from these influencers and learn about recent efforts to integrate them into national PrEP demand generation strategies.

  • Are We There Yet? Progress and Pitfalls with Scaling Up PrEP Delivery
    Thursday, September 8, 2022
    Since oral PrEP was first approved for use in 2012, dozens of countries have approved the product and use is expanding. But the pace of scale-up has been slower than expected and PrEP remains out of reach for many who may benefit from it. In this webinar, scientists, policymakers, and funders will tackle difficult questions such as: What will it take to effectively scale up access to existing and emerging PrEP products? What is preventing PrEP scale-up from happening now? And, what is required to transition from PrEP demonstration projects and early introduction efforts to integration within a comprehensive national HIV prevention response? The session will also explore how new guidance from the World Health Organization on simplified and differentiated delivery of PrEP can facilitate more widespread uptake of PrEP.

In this webinar, we provided an update on the current market status of oral PrEP, PrEP ring, and injectable PrEP, and explored what “choice” means in the context of HIV prevention. We oriented participants to new tools designed to support client decision-making about PrEP use, and heard directly from youth advocates about what they need to make informed choices about HIV prevention.

  • PrEP Delivery Strategies and Universal Access to PrEP: Findings from the POWER and SEARCH Studies
    Thursday, February 25, 2021
    We heard from the research teams from the POWER and SEARCH studies on the specific PrEP service delivery models used, end user motivators and barriers to use, lessons learned and the programmatic implications for these findings. The SEARCH study examined 16 communities in rural Kenya and Uganda, which offered universal access and an inclusive approach to PrEP for those at increased risk of HIV. The delivery model included same-day PrEP start on-site during community testing at health fairs and a flexible care delivery model that included follow-up visits at clinic or community-based sites. The POWER project took place in South Africa and Kenya and developed piloted scalable PrEP adherence support and delivery strategies to meet women’s needs for prevention that are integrated with already established programs.
