HRSA to Host “Ending the HIV Epidemic Initiative Community Engagement Webcast Series” – Feb. 13 and 18
February 10, 2020
The Health Resources and Services Administration’s HIV/AIDS Bureau invites you to participate in a series of two “HRSA Ending the HIV Epidemic Initiative Community Engagement Highlights” webcasts on Thursday, February 13, from 2:00-3:00 p.m. (ET) and Tuesday, February 18, from 2:00-3:00 p.m. (ET).
Community engagement is fundamental to the success of both HRSA’s Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) and the HRSA-funded Health Center Program. As the agency continues to move forward with the Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America (EHE) initiative in FY 2020, HRSA leadership has made it a priority to ensure that the communities most effected by the HIV epidemic have a voice in the planning and implementation of the EHE initiative. In summer/fall 2019, HRSA leadership took part in more than 20 community engagement events in EHE-focused jurisdictions.
HRSA grant recipients, subrecipients, stakeholders, and federal staff are encouraged to participate in this webcast series to hear updates from HRSA on the EHE initiative and to learn about key themes discovered during 2019 EHE Community Engagement Events. These webcasts will feature presentations from RWHAP recipients in the EHE-focus jurisdictions, who will share best practices and highlight models of care in their communities.
