Black MSM and PrEP: Challenges and Opportunities

Although estimates of HIV incidence remain relatively stable in the United States (US), the epidemic continues to increase disproportionately among men who have sex with men (MSM). Notably, nearly half of new HIV infections occur in the South, where Black/African American, young MSM (YMSM, 18 to 35) are at greatest risk. PrEP is a highly effective HIV prevention strategy. While the data about its safety and efficacy in this population are encouraging, structural and social barriers that undermine optimal PrEP uptake, as well as suboptimal adherence and retention in PrEP-related, follow-up medical care must be addressed. In this webinar, two leading infectious disease providers and researchers from Mississippi and Alabama will address possible barriers and facilitators of PrEP uptake among Black MSM and highlight novel efforts to deliver PrEP services to Black MSM.

There is a common misconception that few or no lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people exist within the farmworker community. As a result, the health care needs of LGBT farmworkers are often overlooked. This webinar will address the unique challenges faced by LGBT farmworkers, including invisibility, cultural and religious taboos, and fear of job termination or harassment, to ensure that health care providers are able to provide quality care to this highly vulnerable population.  Alexis Guild a senior health policy analyst from Farmworker Justice will provide an overview of Farmworkers in the US and the unique laws and regulations that can affect health care, and Carlos Casteñada, the Community Outreach Coordinator at Adelante Healthcare, will share his experiences of working with LGBT people in the field and making outreach workers at Adelante Healthcare accessible as a resource for LGBT people.
