We provide community and provider PrEP education sessions. We also assist clinical and nonclinical sites to integrate PrEP discussions and services into their mission, priorities, and routine practice. Our assistance spans locally, nationally and internationally to foster PrEP scale-up worldwide.
CDC Capacity Building Assistance (CBA) Provider Network
The Washington University PrEP Program is a CDC- funded CBA Provider. The program provides training, technical assistance and resources for the HIV prevention workforce in the 12 state Midwest Region, which faces the highest burden of HIV diagnoses in the nation.
Government & Health Department Workgroups
The PrEP Program at Washington University works closely with local, regional, and state government bodies. We co-chair the St. Louis Regional Prevention Advisory Group (RPAG) and Missouri State Comprehensive Prevention Planning Group (CPPG) PrEP Committees. Read more about the CPPG PrEP workgroup here.
Education and Technical Assistance
Our program provides PrEP education sessions and technical assistance to organizations in St. Louis, nationally, and worldwide. Our program staff deliver community and provider talks to for clinical and non-clinical sites. We provide short-term and long-term technical assistance to administrators, providers, and community -based organization staff to sustainably integrate PrEP and other HIV prevention discussions and services into their mission, priorities, and routine practice. Finally, we offer an experiential-based learning session at our clinic and community partners (clinical and non clinical sites) to observe PrEP linkage to care and delivery.
We also work with health departments across the nation to help develop public PrEP care and education programs. We work in partnership with Midwest AIDS Training and Education Center (MATEC), the International Association of Providers of AIDS Care (IAPAC) and other education organizations.
Our clinic tools and protocols have served as resources for programs in the U.S., Asia and Africa.

We have also developed a “Missouri PrEP Implementation Toolkit” to accelerate the adoption of comprehensive PrEP care among different settings and organizations. The toolkit includes templates for clinic and program operation procedures. Resources include material for all members of the health care team, case managers, social workers, administrators, and providers. It has been adapted and applied for various organizations within the US, Asia, and Africa. Access the most recent version here »
