FREE Training: Designing Structural Interventions to Address Social Determinants of Health
March 19 - March 20
Join the California Prevention Training Center (CAPTC) for a new, FREE training course on Designing Structural Interventions to Address Social Determinants of Health.
COURSE DESCRIPTION: Social Determinants of Health (SDH), such as racism, homophobia, lack of education, poverty, and inadequate housing contribute to most HIV-related disparities in the United States, and directly impact knowledge of HIV status, linkage and retention in care, and viral suppression. Structural Interventions (SIs) can assist health departments in addressing SDH by developing interventions that focus on these social, economic, policy, and environmental factors. They can also provide effective mechanisms for organizational change. This two-day course uses didactic and interactive exercises to apply SIs to HIV programs.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND? Health department prevention and surveillance staff responsible for the coordination, planning, or implementation of 18-1802 HIV prevention interventions.
