The webinar is part of the support being provided to Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) jurisdictions through TAP-in, the HRSA-funded technical assistance provider.
In this online event for EHE jurisdictions, participants learned about the role federally qualified health centers play in the care of people who are uninsured and medically under served, including people with HIV. The National Association of Community Health Centers highlighted the infrastructure within jurisdictions’ local community health centers, and what role NACHC plays at the state and national level, to assist those health centers in improving patient outcomes.
A primary care association presented how they were able to partner with their state health department, to create an HIV TelePrEP model of care. This on-line event showcased how this kind of work can also help health centers address, head-on, the COVID-19 pandemic in their state.
