Answer

It is estimated that approximately 25% of MSM and 19% of injection drug users would be eligible for daily PrEP. [28] Despite these numbers and some signs of overall progress in engaging eligible patients in care, [29] a significant number of at-risk patients remain unware of PrEP availability. This is especially true in some of the most at-risk populations, such as black MSM. [30] Continuing efforts in provider education are paramount for successful implementation of these programs.
