Addressing Substance Use Disorders (SUDs) as a Strategy to End the HIV Epidemic

Thursday, February 25, 2021 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm EST
Technical Assistance Provider Innovation Network (TAP-In)

Ending the HIV Epidemic will require providing evidence-based interventions to help people with HIV who have Substance Use Disorders (SUDs). This webinar will review the following:

  • The impact of SUDs (alcohol, opioids and methamphetamine) on the outcomes along the HIV care continuum
  • Three effective evidence-based SUD interventions (Medication Assisted Treatment/MAT, Motivational Interviewing/MI, and Contingency Management/CM)
  • Two examples of jurisdictional efforts addressing SUD as part of their EHE plans
  • TA and training for EHE jurisdictions interested in implementing or enhancing an EHE and SUD initiative

This online TA event is the latest in a series for Ending the HIV Epidemic jurisdictions, convened by TAP-in, the HRSA-funded Technical Assistance Provider supporting the EHE jurisdictions.
