A Demonstration Project of Truvada Based Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) to Prevent HIV Infection in Female Sex Workers

Several recently completed randomized controlled trials of HIV Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) have shown efficacy at reducing HIV acquisition in high-risk populations. How to translate these trial results into population-level effects is the next critical step. PrEP "demonstration" projects, in collaboration with local stakeholders and at sites of routine care for high-risk populations provide an opportunity to move promising research results into actual public health benefits. With these key features in mind, the investigators propose an HIV PrEP demonstration project in FSW in Dakar, Senegal, West Africa. The objective of the proposed demonstration project with Tenofovir DF/Emtricitabine (TDF/FTC) among Female Sex Workers (FSW) in Dakar Senegal is to build a sustainable HIV PrEP program for FSW in Dakar, Senegal while demonstrating the feasibility of providing daily oral PrEP with Truvada (TDF/FTC) for 12 months to the enrolled FSW at Ministry of Heath run clinics (Pikine, Mbao, Rufisque and Diamniadio Health Centers).
