For decades, local planning has been critical to HIV prevention and treatment and will continue to be crucial for effectively creating programs that reach and treat people living with HIV in the Unites States. NACCHO and the Communities Advocating Emergency AIDS Relief (CAEAR) Coalition are working together to foster stronger collaborations between Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) jurisdictions, Ryan White Part A grantees, and HIV community leaders. We plan to create an infrastructure to institutionalize and strengthen communications, share best practices, and explore and support ways for constituents to work together more effectively to address the HIV epidemic. As a first step, we’re inviting all Ryan White Part A grantees and program managers of local health departments to participate in our virtual workshop that will discuss “Ending the HIV Epidemic and Ryan White Part A: How Can a Strengthened Partnership between the CAEAR Coalition and NACCHO Help Jurisdictions?”
Scheduled for Monday, August 10, 2020 (1:00-3:00pm ET), this workshop will provide brief context-setting presentations and participants will engage in small-group facilitated discussions on program successes and challenges, including the short and long-term impact of COVID-19 on community planning and service delivery; needs for technical assistance and advocacy; and recommendations on how CAEAR Coalition and NACCHO can work most effectively together to meet the needs of Part A communities going forward.
