Meth as a Driver of the HIV Epidemic

Thursday, September 30, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm EDT
Technical Assistance Provider Innovation Network (TAP-In)

Methamphetamine is a key driver of the HIV epidemic in jurisdictions nationwide. HIV prevention and treatment, both key efforts in the EHE strategy are negatively affected by the meth crisis.

Presenters will review the epidemiology of the Methamphetamine epidemic as it relates to HIV, including biological changes that affect brain function, the psychodynamics of meth use and the implications for EHE efforts.

The webinar seeks to dispel the myth that very little can be done to engage and treat meth users to achieve positive outcomes. The presenters will share examples of evidence-based and evidence-informed interventions that can assist users to achieve better HIV and health outcomes, with a focus on contingency management (CM)
