Webinar Recording: HIV/AIDS in Rural America

Earlier this month, the Rural Health Information Hub hosted a webinar on HIV/AIDS in Rural America.

Description: The recent CDC report, HIV Incidence: Estimated Annual Infections in the U.S., 2010-2016, estimates that the decrease in Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infections has plateaued because effective HIV prevention and treatment are not adequately reaching individuals with the highest need for these services; such as those in rural areas. This webinar provided an overview of the “Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America” initiative, discussed the distribution of HRSA-funded Ryan White HIV/AIDS medical providers in rural areas of the U.S., and highlighted the work of a current Ryan White recipient working in rural Alabama.
