Webinar: Community Health Workers (CHW) in HIV Services: Insights from Virginia
November 16, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This webinar will focus on the role of CHWs in the provision of services to people living with HIV and how CHWs are utilized within the Virginia Department of Health. The presenters will address program planning, funding, and the scope of work for CHWs and integrating CHWs into Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program-supported programs to enhance HIV prevention, care, and treatment services and to improve health outcomes along the HIV care continuum. This series is part of a cooperative agreement awarded to Boston University’s Center for Advancing Health Policy funded by the Health and Human Services Secretary’s Minority AIDS Initiative Fund (SMAIF). The purpose of this cooperative agreement is to increase the utilization of CHWs to strengthen the health care workforce and improve access to healthcare and health outcomes for racial and ethnic minority people living with HIV.
