Hepatitis and HIV co-infection is a major concern among many racial and ethnic minority groups in the U.S. Prevention and education efforts are hindered by many challenges, including stigma, language barriers, cultural competency and knowledge among providers, and access to services in hard-to-reach communities.
The Office of Minority Health Resource Center kicks off a new webinar series designed to help health professionals, agencies and clinics get past these challenges and address the rising rates of hepatitis and HIV co-infection in their communities. The five-part webinar series examines the current state of hepatitis and HIV among minority groups, as well as best practices for culturally and linguistically appropriate testing and outreach efforts.
The first webinar in the series, “Innovative Strategies for Addressing Hep C in Indian Country,” is scheduled for June 24 at 2pm EDT. Register Now.
