Los Angeles County has the highest HIV infection rates in California and the second highest in the U.S. Today, LA County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl (pictured right) will introduce a motion calling for a program to deliver Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) throughout the county.

According to Kuehl’s motion, LA has become “home to more PrEP demonstration projects than any other area of the US” since 2012. CBAM has played an active part in this work as a site for multiple studies focused on populations at greatest risk for HIV and we support the expansion of PrEP availability as part of a comprehensive program to reduce HIV risk.
