Building Effective Interventions for Latino Clients

August 2019


Learn how two demonstration sites from the HRSA HAB Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) Latino Initiative supported Latino clients of Puerto Rican and Mexican descent move along the HIV care continuum. During this webinar presenters share how they used a transnational approach to build rapport with clients and address their barriers to care through multi-level interventions.

Topics Covered

  • Implementing effective linkage and retention strategies for clients with HIV and substance use disorders
  • Coordinating community level interventions using educational talks, social network testing, and social marketing campaigns to decrease HIV stigma and encourage HIV testing and treatment
  • Improving authenticity and effectiveness by developing culturally tailored communications
  • Working with syringe services programs to identify and support clients with HIV who also have opioid use disorders

Presenters share their lessons learned, provide intervention replication tips, and participate in a Q&A session.
