Granite State PrEP Connect is a Project
of the New Hampshire HIV Planning Group
and Equality Health Center
Our mission is to 1. Raise awareness of HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in communities that could benefit 2. Support folks in starting PrEP and staying in engaged in care 3. Build the PrEP-prescribing capacity of the state. Our goal is to be a resource to clinicians and members of the community alike.
In addition to providing information on PrEP, we hope to share resources and facts on a variety of related healthcare concerns. Please see these outside pages on post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP), sexually transmitted infections (STIs), HIV treatment, and the safer use of injection drugs.
Granite State PrEP Connect is proud to show our support as a Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U) Community Partner. Learn more about U=U and their mission to end the dual epidemics of HIV and HIV-related stigma by empowering people with accurate and meaningful information.

Lynne Weinhrauch, MSN NP
Lynne Weihrauch is a retired Family Nurse Practitioner who specialized in HIV and Infectious Diseases. Lynne also served for many years as a member of the New Hampshire HIV Community Planning Group and currently sits on the New Hampshire HIV Planning Group’s Advisory Committee and Co-Chairs its PrEP Committee. Lynne’s passion for working in the HIV field for over 30 years was born out of a feeling of helplessness watching friends and family die far too young but her commitment to caring for people living with HIV and preventing those at risk from getting the infection grew from her promise to her earlier patients to help people live the dream to love safely and live healthy and happily.
Special thanks to the Chicago PrEP Working Group's PrEP4Love campaign for direction with this project, and to Bella Jacoby and Ethan Wise for graphic design. Granite State PrEP Connect was originally supported in part by an Albert Schweitzer Fellowship, a program that allows fellows to design and implement community-based prevention and intervention projects that address health issues in communities across the country. Other members of the New Hampshire HIV Planning Group PrEP Committee have been instrumental in improving this project.
