CAP is excited to announce that we are currently hiring a full-time (1.0 FTE) PrEP Navigator, with a primary focus in community engagement. The PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) Navigator will develop and expand PrEP resources to the local community including connection to and supporting local medical providers, community education, and creation of social media campaigns. The PrEP Navigator will also use geo-social networking apps to target both individuals and the broader community regarding PrEP. Services may include: education, outreach, and medication adherence services, enrollment with payment assistance plans, and OHP (Oregon Health Plan) enrollment. This role collaborates with a second PrEP Navigator to ensure a broad range of services are offered to the community.

We are looking for an individual with a passion for ensuring people have access to PrEP as well as a strong background in addressing barriers to healthcare through advocacy and education efforts with consumers and providers.
