Partner Services PrEP (PS-PrEP)

This project seeks to test the efficacy of an enhanced linkage to Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) care intervention for HIV negative individuals. PS-PrEP, a collaboration between CCHE and the Chicago Department of Public Health, seeks to innovate traditional HIV prevention methods by combining one of the oldest public health interventions, contract tracing, with the latest biomedical prevention tool, Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP). The intervention attempts to increase PrEP knowledge, social support, and motivation to reduce HIV risk among participants, by collaboratively identifying and addressing barriers to linkage and retention in PrEP care. This study is a randomized controlled trial funded by the National Institute of Mental Health. For more information contact Olivia Blocker.
