Project Overview

Mississippi has the 5th highest rate of new HIV diagnoses in the country at 13.6 per 100,000 individuals, and over half of new HIV diagnoses occur in the South.  Mississippi also has among the highest PrEP-to-need ratios in the country. The premise of this project is that, although underserved populations in Mississippi have high rates of sexually transmitted infections and HIV, many are not engaged in PrEP care.  This can be attributed to a variety of factors, including limited access to PrEP providers, HIV testing, and affordability of PrEP medications, coupled with the stigma associated with sexual health.  We plan to overcome barriers to access to PrEP and other preventive tools in rural and underserved areas. End HIV app will focus on building outreach, at-home testing, and initial linkage to and adherence to PrEP.

We are excited to announce the launch of the application!
