This new course will focus on maintaining health for people with or at risk for HIV infection. This includes initiating and monitoring the use of prexposure prophylaxis (PrEP), sexual health including management and prevention of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), antiretroviral therapy during conception and pregnancy, and appropriate vaccines against preventable diseases. The course will address the notable increase in STIs that has paralleled increased uptake of PrEP. In convening this course, we will address the shift in primary responsibility for managing PrEP and STIs from HIV and infectious disease clinicians to primary care and internal medicine practitioners, as well as the need for widespread education around PrEP, STIs, and prevention throughout the medical community.
