Inclusive and equitable HIV prevention and care planning is an essential part of promoting health equity and responding to the changing demographics of the HIV epidemic. The recently released Integrated HIV Prevention and Care Plan Guidance for 2022-2026 speaks to the need for equitable HIV planning, highlighting how the achievement of national goals to end the epidemic is intrinsically linked to the elimination of existing health inequities.
In this webinar by IHAP and HealthHIV, presenters from Colorado and Los Angeles County will review strategies for promoting equity within your HIV planning body. Presenters will:
- Discuss the ways in which power imbalances can manifest in HIV planning bodies
- Describe how their planning bodies have sought to promote equity
- Provide strategies that can be implemented to foster equity and mitigate power imbalances based on race, education, age, and socioeconomic status
