The Pacific AIDS Education and Training Center (PAETC) – Los Angeles Area and the Los Angeles County HIV Mental Health Task Force are pleased to invite nurses and behavioral health providers to Coping with Hope: Ending the HIV Epidemic and Achieving Health Equity in the COVID-19 Era, a free three-day webinar series on June 23, 24, and 25, 2021.
Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America (EHE) is a ten-year national collaborative initiative between key U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) agencies and community partners. The EHE goals are to reduce new transmission in the U.S. by 75 percent in five years (2025) and 90 percent in ten years (2030) by focusing on four pillars of interventions:
- Pillar 1: Diagnose – Early diagnoses
- Pillar 2: Treatment – Rapid treatment and viral suppression
- Pillar 3: Prevention – Prevent new HIV transmissions
- Pillar 4: Response – Rapid responses to HIV outbreaks
On average, the EHE initiative requires that all populations, especially the populations most impacted by HIV, have universal access to quality care and reach universal levels of diagnoses, retention, and viral suppression. Effectively addressing health disparities is paramount for improving health outcomes, equity, and reaching the overall EHE targets. This webinar series is designed to assist nurses and behavioral health providers integrate comprehensive, high-quality, culturally affirmative, patient/client-centered HIV care guided by the Ending the HIV Epidemic and health equity local efforts.
For broader participation, registration and continuing education are free of charge. Additional webinar instructions will be sent upon registration completion.
At the end of the webinar series, participants will be able to:
- Discuss innovative, best practices and strategies, including bio-medical, behavioral, and structural interventions to End the HIV Epidemic (EHE) and achieve health equity
- Implement at least one change to End the HIV Epidemic (EHE) and achieve health equity in one’s professional work
- Learn and utilize local resources to serve diverse patient populations
