  • CRUSH-PrEP for Women Project

    open to eligible females ages 18 years and up

    UCSF is conducting an evaluation of a demonstration project. The aims of the CRUSH-PrEP for Women project are to integrate the delivery of a comprehensive PrEP package for HIV-negative at-risk women into primary care settings. The delivery of the PrEP package will leverage the well regarded reputation of the LifeLong primary care clinicians to provide a highly effective combination HIV prevention strategy including; PrEP, post-exposure prophylaxis (nPEP), repeat HIV and STI testing, treatment of sexually transmitted infections. Counselling for for sexual health promotion and services specifically designed for vulnerable women such as staying free of violence and domestic abuse will be offered as an integrated part of this package. UCSF will conduct evaluation activities only. The investigators expect that UCSF will enroll 50 participants in the evaluation assessments across the 15 months of data collection. Evaluation cohort participants will provide quantitative data to evaluate the linkage and engagement in care among clinic attendees as well as the uptake and use of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis.

  • HOME Study: Evaluation of a Combination Support Package to Increase Uptake of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis and HIV/STI Testing Among Young Black and Latino MSM in the San Francisco Bay Area.

    open to eligible males ages 18–35

    Home HIV self-testing has been FDA approved and allows users to read their own HIV test results at home, while home sexually transmitted infection (STI) test self-collection allows men to use a swab at home and mail it in for testing. The purpose of this study is to learn how Men who have Sex with Men (MSM) use these new testing options, a set of online support tools, and the option to test with someone to support them (a testing "buddy"). We will also evaluate whether the online tools help these men to connect with HIV prevention services such as Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) if they test HIV negative, and to HIV care services if they test HIV positive.
