CBWF's outreach and prevention mission is to create a healthier community by promoting self efficacy to reduce ones risk of STIs/HIV/Hepatitis through education, testing, and community support.
Outreach Specialist are available to deliver targeted outreach, comprehensive HIV prevention education, and navigation services to coordinate access and follow-up for HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). Staff will provide navigation support services to assist in linkage and follow-up to HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to improve engagement and retention in care.
Staff will provide navigation support services and case management to address your questions and/or concerns about PrEP. Questions relevant to PrEP include but are not limited to:
- What is PrEP and how is it used?
- Would PrEP be a good fit for me?
- What does the APAP clinic do?
- How can PrEP be paid for?
If you are interested in pursuing PrEP, staff will refer to our in-house primary care physician to access health care services. The clinic will test clients for HIV and for other STDs. The decision to start PrEP is made between the client and the doctor.
When you obtain a prescription from the doctor, staff can help the client take the next steps to picking up the medicine. Staff may coordinate with health insurance providers, clinics, pharmacies, and assistance programs to overcome common barriers such as co-pays, deductibles and prior-authorization requirements. Additionally, you and staff can set up a medication adherence plan that will make PrEP a daily routine and establish a timeline for medication refills.
PrEP is available to both insured and uninsured patients. For those underinsured/uninsured patients, medical and healthcare services will be provided on a sliding scale free.
