Oral PrEP is gaining momentum worldwide. More and more countries are approving it for daily use — and global demand is growing!
Introducing PrEP is a complex process, and there's no single mold for an effective program. But this section of PrEPWatch is a great place to start. Here you will find a step by step framework for scaling up PrEP, lessons from the field, updates from different countries and other resources for PrEP introduction.
A Framework for Scaling up PrEP
This section outlines the steps involved for introducing oral PrEP and provides links to specific tools and resources for the following steps:
Implementation Initiatives and Partners
On this page you will find information and resources about oral PrEP programs being implemented now and the organizations funding them. These resources comprise a storehouse of tools developed by existing PrEP programs made available here for the planning and implementation of future programs.
Lessons from the Field
As oral PrEP rolls out in Eastern and Southern Africa, implementers are facing and overcoming real world obstacles. Lessons from the Field brings you these stories. Come here to learn from others, sharpen insights and find useful resources. Together, we will make HIV prevention and the implementation of PrEP smart, efficient and effective.
Visit these pages regularly as we will be adding resources on an ongoing basis.

Laura Fitch (AVAC) presented data from AVAC's global PrEP tracker, showing that in the first quarter of 2018, 309,525 people were initiated on oral PrEP. The tracker captures data from ongoing and planned oral PrEP demonstration projects, implementation initiatives and national programmes, and probably underestimates the number of people beginning oral PrEP, particularly in Asia.
