IMPACT on Health Disparities
in HIV Prevention

Despite strides in overall HIV prevention, certain population groups are still experiencing rising HIV infection rates. Why? Stigma. Lack of education about HIV-prevention measures. Limited access to HIV-prevention medication. Discomfort in talking about sex with clinicians or about HIV status with partners.

This CME/CE-certified, sequenced learning initiative, including both live and online activities, will provide clinicians with education and resources to help them optimize HIV-prevention efforts in at-risk populations.

Featured Activity

Case: Culturally Competent HIV Prevention in an African American Man
0.50 / AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM
0.50 / CNE Contact Hour

Although prevention strategies have been successful in certain populations, heterosexual African-American men are not adequately targeted for HIV prevention. This case vignette features a 42-year-old African-American man who is HIV-negative but whose wife is HIV-positive. In this setting, clinicians must take a comprehensive and culturally competent approach to HIV prevention to reach and treat those at greatest risk in the African-American community.
