Can we end the epidemic? An update on HIV screening, prevention, and treatment
- Date/Time: Thursday, September 17, 2015, 1:00-2:00pm ET
- Faculty: Kevin Ard, MD, MPH, Massachusetts General Hospital & National LGBT Health Education Center
- Sponsor: The National LGBT Health Education Center and The National Center for Innovation in HIV Care
The advances in HIV treatment and prevention in recent years have greatly influenced how HIV medical and service providers approach HIV screening, prevention, and treatment. The approval of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), the advent of treatment as prevention, and the increased emphasis on the HIV continuum of care have all provided tools critical for ending the HIV epidemic. How can health centers and community-based organizations capitalize on these advances to implement more effective HIV prevention and care? How can we use these tools to work toward ending the epidemic? In this webinar, Kevin Ard, MD, MPH, will summarize new research findings and practice guidelines that inform HIV treatment and prevention, will identify barriers to effective HIV screening, prevention, and treatment, and will describe ways to overcome these barriers.
