Facility information in the PrEP Locator database
The PrEP Locator database was created by Emory University, and more information can be found here. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Prevention Information Network (NPIN) and Emory have integrated data to provide a comprehensive, national directory of public and private PrEP providers in the United States. The PrEP Locator is now powered by the NPIN service provider database.
Facilities will be updated, added, or removed from the NPIN database through several mechanisms. NPIN staff will communicate with all facilities in the database annually to update their information. Organizations willing to participate in more real-time mechanisms to update the database will be accommodated. The directory has an opt-in form for adding additional providers to the database. Providers may add themselves to the database. NPIN staff will review all opt-in database entries, and confirm their eligibility to participate.
Facility eligibility for being entered into the Locator database
The Locator database includes both public and private healthcare providers willing to prescribe PrEP. Each entry in the database represents a single “facility” location, with eligible facilities including clinics, multiple provider practices, and single-provider practices. Vetting of the database includes verifying through provider self-reported key data fields, such as website, phone number, address, and willingness to prescribe PrEP. Such verification may be conducted through phone calls and/or electronic survey.
