Pharmacists’ contributions to HIV prevention and management

1 December 2022

The first of December commemorates World AIDS day and this year FIP will join this campaign by launching a toolkit for pharmacists on HIV prevention, screening and management. It is now possible to effectively prevent the transmission of HIV through pharmacological strategies (preexposure and postexposure prophylaxis). New HIV tests have also become available, including point-of-care tests and self-tests. Pharmacists’ expertise and accessibility can be leveraged for a variety of important roles in the prevention and screening of HIV infections. Join this event to learn about these roles and be inspired by examples from different countries.

By the end of the session participants should be able to:

  • Understand the roles pharmacists can play in HIV prevention, screening and management
  • Recognise some resources and tools that pharmacists can use in this area
  • Find and use the FIP toolkit on HIV prevention, screening and management
