Background: Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a proven strategy for HIV prevention, but knowledge and uptake of PrEP in Miami remain suboptimal. People living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) may have HIV uninfected sexual partners who could benefit from PrEP. Few studies have addressed knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs regarding PrEP among PLWHA.
