New Pandemic, Old Inequities: Impacts of COVID-19 and HIV on Marginalized Populations

Thursday, March 4, 2021 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm EST
AETC National Coordinating Resource Center (NCRC)

This is session 6 in the AETC National Coordinating Resource Center's HIV & SARS-CoV-2 Winter webinar series. It is designed to enhance the readiness of healthcare providers caring for people with HIV and COVID-19. In collaboration with members of the AETC HIV/COVID-19 Stakeholders Group, the topics of this series were identified as those in most need of being addressed nationally.

Objectives:

  • Explain intersectional structural discrimination and its relevance and context in the landscape of HIV and COVID-19 as it pertains to the health and well-being of marginalized populations, particularly LGBTQ+ and racial/ethnic populations
  • Analyze the history and present state of the HIV pandemic and the lessons available to inform our response to COVID-19
  • Identify the specific factors which place marginalized populations at greater risk for COVID-19
  • Describe empirical evidence of disparities in HIV and COVID-19 among marginalized populations, and identify how the two conditions are related
  • Discuss strategies offered by social justice, anti-racism, and LGBTQ+ liberation frameworks and history to mitigate the impact of disparities
  • Share resources to support on going learning to promote health equity
