FOSTER CITY, Calif. — Aug. 14, 2015 — Gilead Sciences, Inc. announced today it is granting funding to 66 organizations to support community-based projects and programs providing education for pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) as part of a comprehensive HIV prevention strategy.
Gilead awarded the grants to organizations that provide PrEP education to populations at high risk for HIV infections that are traditionally under-served, including young adult men who have sex with men (MSM), people of Hispanic/Latino ethnicities, transgender women and African American heterosexuals. The selected organizations are developing programs with educational concepts that can be replicated and executed across the United States, maximizing the potential to reduce the number of new HIV infections.
“Each grantee understands the unique needs of the at-risk communities they serve and recognizes HIV prevention education should be tailored accordingly, in a culturally-competent and meaningful way,” says Gregg Alton, Executive Vice President, Corporate and Medical Affairs for Gilead Sciences.
A full list of organizations receiving Gilead grants is included below, and the following are a few of the ways grantees are educating communities about PrEP as one component of multifaceted HIV prevention strategies
To date, Gilead has awarded more than $13 million in funding to support PrEP education and awareness grants. To learn more about Gilead’s corporate grant programs, visit the company’s website.
