Efforts in San Francisco are maximizing the use of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) among men who have sex with men (MSM) where high levels of use are needed to maximize reducing new HIV infections. National HIV Behavioral Surveillance surveys MSM in San Francisco. Demographics, health care and risk behaviors are assessed. PrEP use is measured for 12 month, 6 month and 30 day periods. Of 399 HIV uninfected men sampled in 2017, 43.4% used PrEP in the past 12 months. Proportions of men using PrEP by race/ethnicity were not significant at any time point. Decreases between 6 month and 30 day use were highest among African American and Latino men. These men had the highest proportion of intermittent use in the past 30 days but not significantly. While our data suggest the disparity in PrEP use by race/ethnicity has narrowed in San Francisco, novel delivery of PrEP may narrow disparity further.
