Blueprints for Success Addressing the Demand for Equitable, Patient-Centered Care

Originally Broadcast: Friday, September 25, 2020 from 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM EDT

Confronted by the triple challenges of HIV, COVID-19, and systemic racism, Black communities are experiencing ongoing disparities in health outcomes. The program will explore how advances in the HIV landscape may address obstacles and help bring an end to the HIV epidemic. It will also look at current challenges, how they impact HIV care, and how increased use of disruptive innovations such as telehealth platforms may help improve and fast-track HIV care and prevention strategies. Through conversations, the program will also seek to show not only how far we as a nation have come in terms of grappling with the HIV epidemic, but also how far we still need to go. Stigma, discrimination, and bias continue to hamper our efforts to bring all patients into our care. Overcoming this entails a commitment to self-reflection and to creative strategies to increase uptake in HIV care and prevention.
