Low Knowledge of HIV PrEP Within a Midwestern US Cohort of Persons who Inject Drugs

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We interviewed persons who inject drugs (PWID) to understand perceptions of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to prevent HIV infection. Knowledge of PrEP was poor. Patients felt that PrEP was for sexual intercourse rather than injection drug use, and PWID managed on medications for opioid use disorder felt that they had no need for PrEP.
