A pilot program was implemented to assess the feasibility of emergency department (ED) preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP) referral. Of 119 eligible patients approached and assessed, 39 (33%) expressed interest and were referred to peer navigators. Of these, 16 (41%) scheduled for appointments; four (10%) initiated PrEP, which demonstrated ED-based PrEP referral was feasible.
