  • Successful expansion of PrEP access in Brazil
  • Key findings from the prospective ImPrEP study evaluating implementation of same-day oral PrEP among men who have sex with men and transgender women in Brazil, Mexico, and Peru
  • What long-acting PrEP could mean for at-risk groups in Latin America when it becomes available
