Ethics approval and consent to participate
: The study was approved by the Ethics Research Committee/ Institutional Review Board (IRB) at Chulalongkorn University, Faculty of Medicine, Bangkok, Thailand. For this study, verbal consent was obtained from the participants upon enrollment of the Princess PrEP Program. Verbal consent was obtained instead of written consent, which was approved by the IRB, as HIV testing and PrEP dispensing were part of routine services provided by these community-based organizations. To ensure that the participants were adequately informed, each participant had to do the survey assessing their willingness and knowledge about PrEP. Participants with satisfactory results were provided PrEP. Clients who were not ready and/or declined any of the services were recorded, and did not received such services.
