Long-acting injectable (LAI) HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) may mitigate adherence challenges reported by young women in Southern Africa. We assessed preferences for PrEP in public-sector, primary care clinics in Swaziland. Among surveyed respondents, 75% (95% confidence interval = 65–83%) stated preference for LAI over oral PrEP; with no differences by sex, age, or sexual behavior (all P > 0.05). Notably, over 70% (95% confidence interval 58–82%) with current use of oral PrEP also stated preference for LAI PrEP.
