BACKGROUND Despite decreasing rates of HIV among many populations, HIV-related health disparities among gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men persist, with disproportional percentages of new HIV diagnoses among racial and ethnic minority men. Despite increasing awareness of HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), PrEP use remains low. In addition to exploring individual-level factors for this slow uptake, structural drivers of PrEP use must also be identified in order to maximize the… 
Barriers to the Wider Use of Pre-exposure Prophylaxis in the United States: A Narrative Review
TLDR
A narrative review seeks to identify individual and systemic barriers to PrEP usage in the USA and uncovered a complex array of structural, social, clinical, and behavioral barriers, including knowledge/awareness of PrEP, perception of HIV risk, stigma from healthcare providers or family/partners/friends, distrust of healthcare providers/systems, access toPrEP, costs of Pr EP, and concerns around PrEP side effects/medication interactions.

Reproductive intentions among HIV-negative gay and bisexual men initiating pre-exposure prophylaxis in the Sustainable Health Center Implementation pre-exposure prophylaxis pilot study, 2014–2016
TLDR
Clinicians offering PrEP to black and other/non-Hispanic gay and bisexual men should assess their reproductive intentions as family-planning counseling may be an opportunity to introducePrEP to HIV-negative gay andisexual men.
Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV Prevention Among Men Who Have Sex with Men (MSM): A Scoping Review on PrEP Service Delivery and Programming
TLDR
A scoping review of extant international literature documenting service related perspectives, models and lessons learnt in PrEP programming for MSM highlights the complexities in providing optimal PrEP services for MSM by mapping and illustrating the importance of understanding the informal and formal routes to PrEP use.
Comparing Web-Based Platforms for Promoting HIV Self-Testing and Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis Uptake in High-Risk Men Who Have Sex With Men: Protocol for a Longitudinal Cohort Study
TLDR
Evaluating the relative effectiveness of advertisements placed on 3 types of web-based platforms for promoting HIV self-testing and PrEP uptake may improve the understanding of how the platform users’ receptivity to test for HIV differs across web-Based platforms and thus may assist in facilitating web- based HIV prevention campaigns.
Pre-exposure Prophylaxis Use Among Crystal Methamphetamine-Using MSM Who Receive Community-Based Harm Reduction Services in New York City: A Retrospective Chart Review.
TLDR
The aim was to compare uninfected MSM-C who did and did not report being on PrEP with respect to sociodemographic characteristics, substance use, sexual behaviors, and HIV testing, and to find which men were more likely to adopt PrEP.

Enhancing PrEP Access for Black and Latino Men Who Have Sex With Men
TLDR
Specific points of multilevel intervention are suggested to increase PrEP access for Black and Latino men who have sex with men and increase representation of BLMSM along the PrEP continuum of care.
Psychosocial factors related to willingness to use pre-exposure prophylaxis for HIV prevention among Black men who have sex with men attending a community event.
TLDR
Findings from the current paper demonstrate the importance of acknowledging the role of various psychosocial factors in the uptake of PrEP, as the failure to do so will impede the tremendous potential of this prevention technology.
Potential Healthcare Insurance and Provider Barriers to Pre‐Exposure Prophylaxis Utilization Among Young Men Who Have Sex with Men
TLDR
Older YMSM, blacks and Hispanics, those with fewer years of formal education, and residents of the southern and the western United States were more likely to lack healthcare access, and disparities in access to healthcare by age, race/ethnicity, education and region were identified.
Perceived Likelihood of Using HIV Pre-exposure Prophylaxis Medications Among Young Men Who Have Sex with Men
TLDR
Interest in PrEP use under various conditions of side-effects, dosing, and effectiveness were assessed and it was indicated that this sample was somewhat interested in adopting PrEP as an HIV prevention strategy, particularly if the dosing and side- effects burden was low and the perceived benefits were high.
Acceptability of PrEP Uptake Among Racially/Ethnically Diverse Young Men Who Have Sex With Men: The P18 Study.
TLDR
Findings suggest that self-perceived risk for HIV transmission, enjoying unprotected sex, and being in a romantic relationship were associated with PrEP uptake and underscore the importance of addressing behavioral and structural factors in maximizing the effectiveness of PrEP.

Complex and Conflicting Social Norms: Implications for Implementation of Future HIV Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) Interventions in Vancouver, Canada
TLDR
Stigma regarding ‘risky’ behaviour and PrEP should not be underestimated as a serious implementation challenge, and pre-implementation strategies that concomitantly aim to improve knowledge about PrEP, while addressing associated social prejudices, may be key to effective implementation and scale-up.
Barriers to Access and Adoption of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis for the Prevention of HIV Among Men Who Have Sex With Men (MSM) in a Relatively Rural State.
TLDR
Overall, geographic isolation limits access to health providers and resources that support sexual health for Oklahoma MSM, and addressing stigma situated across ecological levels in an effort to increase adoption of PrEP by MSM residing in rural states remains necessary.

TLDR
Many New England MSM indicated an interest in using PrEP after learning about its potential, particularly if they could obtain PrEP at no expense and if PrEP had no side effects, suggesting that careful educational messages are necessary to ensure appropriate PrEP use if clinical trials reveal partial efficacy.
