Integrated Planning Activities for Prevention and Care: Best Practices and Lessons Learned
Event Date: Thursday, April 25, 2019 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm EDT
Event Type: Webinar / Teleconference
IHAP TA Center
Historically, prevention and care programs have operated separate planning groups, responsible for overseeing the planning and implementation of HIV activities within communities. In the past, Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part A and Part B recipients and CDC-funded prevention jurisdictions have conducted parallel planning activities, often with little collaboration or coordination. However, there has been a recent shift towards integrating planning body activities as a way to reduce duplication and streamline the work of planning groups. The benefits of integrating planning activities are myriad, but there can be barriers to successful collaboration, including financial responsibility for administrative support; voting responsibilities and parity; and culture differences between prevention and care planning bodies.
This webinar, hosted by the Integrated HIV/AIDS Planning Technical Assistance Center, will focus on integrated planning activities. Attendees will learn about various models of collaboration or integration that jurisdictions can pursue, as well as the benefits and potential challenges associated with integrated planning activities. The webinar will feature guest presenters from Memphis, TN and San Francisco, CA who will detail their jurisdictions’ efforts to integrate planning activities of prevention and care, and discuss lessons learned and promising practices.
