The Caribbean Vulnerable Communities is accepting applications for small Grants for Creation and Deployment of Social Media Advocacy that would spur interest in pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and self-testing.



  • The social media campaign needs to emphasise the following themes: PrEP-specific health literacy (e.g., awareness, knowledge of how to seek PrEP); low HIV risk perception and HST; empowerment inherent to PrEP as a highly effective and acceptable prevention method; anti-gay stigma and the advantages of HST; and PrEP and the fear that family or friends might assume they were taking medications because they are living with HIV.
