Study In Rural Kenya, Uganda Analyzes Predictors Of Early PrEP Adoption

IDSA’s “Science Speaks”: Early PrEP uptake in Africa study gives support for possibility of wider acceptance
Antigone Barton, senior editor and writer of “Science Speaks,” discusses findings from a study analyzing predictors of early PrEP adoption by examining factors increasing the likelihood of PrEP acceptance among people in rural Kenya and Uganda. Barton notes, “The findings point to the possibility, with caveats, that widespread roll-out of the proven HIV prevention measure to individuals at high risks for infection across resource-limited communities is feasible” (5/9).
