PrEP Awareness Week (October 25-29) is observed the last week of October each year.

The week also seeks to highlight how PrEP can work for Miami-Dade’s residents, with an emphasis on celebrating the diversity and strength of our communities.

The PrEP Implementation Summit is scheduled to be held virtually on Wednesday, October 27th from 2:00-4:00 PM. Providers will have the opportunity to hear from experienced PrEP providers and content experts on best practices for providing PrEP care in Miami-Dade County.
