An important goal of PrEP decision-making support is to ensure that your clients who may benefit from PrEP fully consider the option, and that clients who decide to take PrEP view it as part of their overall sexual health plan. Effective PrEP decision-making support also ensures that clients who choose not to take PrEP have other sex-positive sexual health prevention strategies in place that best support them.
