Resources for HIV, STI, & Viral Hepatitis Programs During COVID-19

May 28, 2020

Local health departments (LHDs) are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. LHD HIV, STI, and viral hepatitis (HSH) programs are being called upon to contribute their clinical, epidemiological, disease investigation, and outreach and education expertise to COVID-19 response efforts. To protect their clients and communities, LHD HSH programs are adapting to this new reality, finding ways to enhance COVID-19 control efforts and continue offering HSH services, all while implementing social distancing and other best practices.

Share Your Story

To maintain situational awareness of the impact of COVID-19 on LHD HIV, STI, and viral hepatitis programs, NACCHO is collecting information on an ongoing basis. Please contact Kat Kelley (kkelley@naccho.org) to share how the pandemic has impacted your health department’s HIV, STI, hepatitis, or harm reduction programs. NACCHO is also seeking feedback on whether and how LHDs are implementing at-home testing for HIV and other STIs. NACCHO may consider additional data and information gathering activities as the pandemic progresses.

Resources

NACCHO is also developing resources for HSH programs and compiling relevant tools from federal, state, and local public health agencies. This blog will be updated as new resources become available:
