November 15, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Capacity Building Assistance Provider Network (CPN) is hosting a webinar on “Addressing Social Determinants in HIV Prevention and Care: Power and Place Matter.” The purpose of the webinar is to increase the knowledge of community-based organization, health department, and healthcare organization providers on the connection of social determinants to HIV-related health disparities. Participants will:
- Hear about definitions and identify key social determinants that are responsible for disparities related to population, geography, etc. in their focused work areas.
- Hear examples of what people are doing to address the challenge that particular social determinants create.
- Learn about methods to increase =capacity to address social determinants in their HIV prevention and care work.
The Capacity Building Assistance Provider Network (CPN) uses the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention definition of Social Determinants of Health (SDH), “conditions in the environments in which people live, learn, work, play, worship, and age that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes and risks.” According to the National HIV/AIDS Strategy for the United States: Updated to 2020: “The Nation cannot meet the Strategy goals without reducing disparities. Poor social and environmental conditions, coupled with high rates of HIV among specific populations and in geographic areas, contribute to stubbornly persistent—and in some cases, growing— HIV-related health disparities” (NHAS, 2015).
