This interactive one-day training will examine factors in which people are born, work, live, play, pray and age known as social determinants of health (SDH) and how they relate to HIV-related disparities. Participants will examine social and structural factors like racism, gender identity, economic status, housing, education, and stigma that impact patients and communities in accessing HIV care and prevention services. Attendees will be introduced to approaches and strategies in which they will learn to identify and address the SDH in their communities, increase health equities and improve health outcomes for people with HIV.
At the completion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Define social determinants of health
- Describe the connection between HIV-related health disparities and social determinants of health
- Describe at least one causal pathway a particular social determinant creates for accessing HIV care and prevention
- Identify at least one strategy to address social determinants to promote HIV healthcare access with patients and communities
