Abstract

Using a representative sample of gonorrhea cases in select jurisdictions, we estimated the proportion of eligible men who have sex with men reporting being prescribed preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to prevent HIV infection. In 2016, half (51.3%) of the estimated 33,165 eligible men who have sex with men reported being prescribed PrEP by their health care provider.
