West Africa Regional PrEP Learning Network
The West Africa Regional PrEP Learning Network, hosted by CHOICE, provides national and sub-national ministries, implementing partners, community-based organizations, and others working with PrEP across West Africa with the tools and resources, best practices and opportunities to learn from others to help advance PrEP rollout and scale-up.
The goal of the Learning Network is to specifically engage the countries of Nigeria, Cote d’Ivoire, Mali, Ghana, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Togo, Liberia, Angola and Burundi to share experience and cover topics that help meet their current PrEP planning and programming needs. This monthly webinar series features presentations from experts in specific content areas, lessons learned and insights shared from implementing partners and government ministries, and new tools or research on specific topics related to PrEP scale-up, ranging from demand creation to continuation.
This webinar series will launch in July 2020. The following pages includes links to register for upcoming webinars, and will house previously recorded webinars and webinar presentations.

The West Africa Regional PrEP Learning Network will be hosted by:
Collaboration for HIV Prevention Options to Control the Epidemic (CHOICE), an 18-month collaboration funded by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the US Agency for International Development (USAID), through the Office of HIV/AIDS’ five-year competitively awarded central mechanisms: Meeting Targets and Maintaining Epidemic Control (EpiC) and Reaching Impact, Saturation, and Epidemic Control (RISE). The goal of this partnership is to address technical gaps and support national scale-up of antiretroviral-based HIV prevention products (collectively referred to as pre-exposure prophylaxis or PrEP) in PEPFAR countries through catalytic evidence generation, translation and research utilization. CHOICE is led by FHI 360 and Jhpiego.
