Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is recommended as an additional HIV prevention measure for persons at substantial risk of HIV acquisition. Although uptake of PrEP among female sex workers (FSW) has increased, retention remains low, resulting in suboptimal

from five (5) health centers for the period between April-June 2020 and April-June 2021.PrEP retention was defined as presenting for a scheduled follow-up visit.
