Despite the important strides made in HIV management over the past 2 decades, African-American and Latino men who have sex with men still face a hugely disproportionate risk for HIV infection relative to that of other populations. Unfortunately, uptake of HIV prevention strategies has been relatively low among those most likely to benefit. These patients face a host of challenges to the delivery of effective health care due to variety of social and structural barriers. In light of the recent data on continuing disparities in HIV transmission, overcoming obstacles to accessing prevention strategies is more critical than ever.
Primary care providers (MDs, DOs, PAs, NPs), including those providing care within Federally Qualified Health Centers, inclusive of LGBTQ Health Centers, who manage the care of individuals at risk for HIV infection.
As a result of participating in the activity, learners should be better able to:
Describe the rationale for national directives for focused HIV-prevention interventions
Identify patients who are likely to benefit from HIV-prevention strategies
Implement HIV-prevention services for appropriate patients
Employ culturally competent educational strategies to improve the uptake of prevention strategies among patients at increased risk for HIV infection
