As part of a bold U.S. Department of Health and Human Services-wide initiative that strives to end the HIV epidemic in the United States by 2030, the Ending the HIV Epidemic in the United States (EHE) initiative is “vital to regain momentum, advance innovation, and achieve health equity”, according to the CDC. In the wake of COVID-19, expanding the four science-based strategies of Diagnose, Treat, Prevent, and Respond are essential to success in EHE efforts. Join this virtual program to learn about the equitable and innovative efforts the City of St. Louis (Missouri) Department of Health have engaged in to ensure access to HIV prevention, treatment and care.
This activity is intended for advanced HIV providers, including but not limited to physicians, PAs, nurses/NPs, pharmacists, and social workers. Others involved in HIV/STI care and prevention are welcome to participate.
As a result of attending this activity, participants will be able to:
- Relate the impact of COVID-19 on public health priorities
- Outline Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) plans
- Relate EHE outcomes with lessons learned and best practices
- Summarize the Fast Track Cities initiative in St. Louis, and efforts to address health disparities among marginalized populations with HIV
Continuing education credits will be available for this webinar, pending accreditation.
