The advances in HIV treatment and prevention in recent years have greatly influenced how HIV medical and service providers approach HIV screening, prevention, and treatment. The approval of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), the advent of treatment as prevention, and the increased emphasis on the HIV continuum of care have all provided tools critical for ending the HIV epidemic.

  • How can health centers and community-based organizations capitalize on these advances to implement more effective HIV prevention and care?
  • How can we use these tools to work toward ending the epidemic?

In this webinar, Kevin Ard, MD, MPH, summarizes new research findings and practice guidelines that inform HIV treatment and prevention, identifies barriers to effective HIV screening, prevention, and treatment, and describes ways to overcome these barriers.

This webinar was co-sponsored with the National LGBT Health Education Center. If you would like to view this webinar for CME/CEU credit, please access the video on the Ed Center's website.
