PleasePrEPMe.org launched June 11, 2015, as a searchable, location-responsive PrEP provider directory for California. This launch included CA PrEP providers from regional directories: DHSP/UCLA LAC PATH-PrEP Collaboration, HIVE’s Bay Area PrEP Provider Directory, Kelly R. Walsh, MS and the California Collaborative Treatment Group (CCTG), and San Francisco City Clinic.
Providers added to PleasePrEPMe following June 11, 2015 have been identified by the CA State Office of AIDS, found by PleasePrEPMe staff, or submitted by providers themselves. We collect the fields seen on the “Add Location” page . Data is then stored in our secure database for approval. Once vetted and approved, the submitter receives an email confirming their approval and the submission is published. PleasePrEPMe clinic submissions are vetted by the directory coordinator.
PleasePrEPMe is a community that is reliant on an involved and active user base and publicly available information. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of the data.
PrEPLocator.org launched in September 2016 as a national database of PrEP providers. PleasePrEPMe contributes California listings to PrEPLocator.org. PrEPLocator provides the national database via API to PleasePrEPMe, allowing for our site to be national in scope. For more information on the data development in PrEPlocator visit here.
