Evaluating family physicians’ willingness to prescribe PrEP

Abstract : Introduction: We assessed family physicians' (FP) willingness to integrate PrEP into their clinical practice in Montpellier and its surroundings.Method: We aimed to randomly assess 92 FPs.Results: Ninety-six FPs were interviewed from May to December 2018: 78% (95% CI [69; 86]) were willing to integrate PrEP, 65% to be trained, and 52% to be the first providers. Of the 65 (6%) with some knowledge of PrEP, 21 were not aware of targeted populations and 39 never talked about PrEP with their patients. Nearly all FPs declared HIV prevention as part of their job and felt at ease talking about sexuality. Considering HIV prevention as part of their job was associated with increased likelihood to integrate PrEP into their practice (P=0.015).Conclusions: Most FPs were willing to integrate and be trained on PrEP. Lack of PrEP prescription seemed related to a lack of knowledge.
