Webinar: New PrEP products for Asia Pacific – What do we Need to Know?

Published October 1, 2021
Location Asia Pacific

Join us for the regional Asia Pacific discussion on #PrEP! The webinar will discuss evidence supporting long-acting injectable drug cabotegravir (CAB-LA) from the successful HPTN 083 Study in Thailand and Vietnam, while also discussing implications for combination prevention and other future PrEP products. Representatives from key population communities will share their views on how they envisioned PrEP as HIV combination prevention strategy going forward. 

A prelude for an upcoming regional survey to assess values and preferences for PrEP products, the webinar is intended for civil society organizations, key population communities and other stakeholders who are interested in learning more about new PrEP products and actively participating in generating demand for PrEP in the Asia Pacific region.

Date: Thursday 7 October 2021

Webinar Local Times: 12:30 IST (Colombo, New Delhi) / 14:00 ICT (Bangkok, Hanoi, Jakarta, Phnom Penh, Vientiane) / 15:00 PST (Beijing, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Singapore, Taipei)
