Best Practices in HIV Prevention: Translating Innovation into Action


Best Practices in HIV Prevention: Translating Innovation into Action

On September 27, 2013, the National LGBT Health Education Center hosted a summit of 15 experts to discuss the most innovative and evidence-based HIV prevention strategies and how to implement these strategies into clinical practice. The summit brought together leaders in HIV prevention research, education, policy, and community engagement to share interventions, professional experiences, and research findings, and to debate next best steps to ending the epidemic among the vulnerable populations of gay and bisexual men and transgender women.

Watch a preview: 

Based on the findings from this summit, we have developed a multi-media educational course that includes the White Paper: Best Practices in HIV Prevention: Translating Innovation into Action, with accompanying videos and slides from the summit. All materials can be viewed for free and can be viewed separately or together.
