Trajectory of Countries with Most PrEP Initiations in SSA, 2016-2023

Wednesday, May 24, 2023

Q1 2023 marked 481,237 new global PrEP initiations, which can be attributed to the scale-up of national programs and PEPFAR’s commitment to support and closely track PrEP investments. Key countries including Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda and Zambia have led in these investments and show marked increases in PrEP initiations.

However, discrimination and oppression of basic human rights, including proposed anti-gay legislation in Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania threaten lives and livelihoods and could roll back substantial progress in the scale-up of PrEP programming.
