 PrEPster Questions + Answers on PrEP - briefing paper
PrEPster produced this set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about PrEP following a number of training interventions with frontline outreach workers. The FAQs are intended primarily for workers who have some existing level of knowledge about PrEP. Although developed for a UK audience, much of the information is relevant globally. As such, the UK specific information is at the end of the briefing, allowing international colleagues to adapt the briefing to make them country or region specific. We welcome feedback to inform future editions - hello@prepster.info

 Learning slides
PrEPster and HIV Scotland, along with the HIV Literacy research project developed this training slide set that provides starter information about PrEP.

These slides can be used without permission – but if you do use them please let us know by emailing hello@prepster.info - we’d love to follow up with you about how you used the slides and how they could be improved.
