PrEP for HIV prevention has shown efficacy with MSM and heterosexuals. US and global regulatory action is expected in 2012. Demonstration projects are underway in Africa and the US. PrEP will be most effective if combined with behavioral interventions and scaled-up treatment. A key concern is the cost, and finding the balance between funding prevention and treatment. Advocates, policymakers, funders, clinicians and researchers will lead an examination of the following: What do we know about PrEP implementation? How will it vary geographically and by population? How do we maximize PrEP's potential and minimize barriers to implementation? How important is the human rights context? Given the overdue recent focus on most vulnerable populations, how do we ensure that PrEP doesn't overshadow other prevention approaches?
