Women's Health Education Program

Students in the Women's Health Education program at Drexel University College of Medicine.

Drexel University College of Medicine's Women's Health Education Program (WHEP), part of the Department of Medicine, is one of six original National Centers of Excellence in Women's Health awarded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women's Health. WHEP is committed to advocating for women's health issues in medicine. We also strive to create an inclusive space for people of all gender identities, each of whom face unique challenges in medicine. Our efforts are directed toward long- and short-term change, with the hope that the future physicians we train will view women's health as a fundamental element of medical care that is more than reproductive health and will view gender past the male-female binary that so many have been taught.

To maximize uptake and adherence during this time, PrEP formulations should be tailored to individual preferences. Prevention of HIV during this critical life transition is important not only for the long-term health and well-being of pregnant individuals and their infants, but to the plan to end the HIV epidemic in the United States by 2030.
