Please join us for Santa Clara County Systems of Care Roundtable VII: Health Care Reform— High Impact HIV Prevention
In response to the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS), released in July 2010, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is currently framing a new approach to HIV prevention in the US. This FREE presentation will explain the new approach, called High Impact HIV Prevention, and explore what makes an intervention “high-impact.”
The roundtable discussion will take place on Wednesday, August 29, 2012, from 2:30 to 5pm at the Santa Clara County Service Center Auditorium, located at 1555 Berger Drive, Building 2 in San Jose, CA. Light refreshments will be provided.
Presenter: Sonya Dublin, MPH/MSW, Capacity Building Specialist, Asian Pacific Islander American Health Forum (APIAHF)
Description of HIV/AIDS Systems of Care:
Promoting a comprehensive system of care, education, and prevention for all people in Santa Clara County living with, affected by, or at risk for HIV/AIDS.
We believe that it is important for all HIV/AIDS service providers and partners in Santa Clara County to collaborate and work in partnership to enhance the current systems of care. Through such collaborative approaches, we can create a seamless system of care, utilize our resources more effectively, identify the service gaps and needs, and better serve the community.
The Santa Clara County Public Health Departments HIV/AIDS program organized the Systems of Care Roundtable to serve this purpose and bring programmatic personnel and providers together to strategize, network, and develop new relationships.
By the end of the presentation, participants will:
• Understand the overall approach of High Impact HIV Prevention and the 6 major considerations of high impact: effectiveness, cost, scalability, coverage, interaction, and prioritization
• Be familiar with the 5 new categories of High Impact HIV Prevention interventions (biomedical, public health strategies, behavioral, structural, and social marketing) and examples of each
• Understand the rationale for increasing emphasis on Prevention with Positives interventions
• Be able to select appropriate proven effective Linkage to Care and/or Treatment Adherence interventions for their programs
• Be able to select appropriate proven effective HIV testing models for their programs
• Feel confident exploring further resources on new HIV testing technologies and testing algorithms
• Feel confident incorporating the new High Impact HIV Prevention approach into future organizational and program planning
