Data to Action: Using Data to Initiate and Inform HIV/STI Client Services and Public Health Response

November 29, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

Join Alive! Maryland, led by HealthHIV, on Wednesday, November 29, 2023 at 12:00pm Eastern for a webinar that will illuminate how HIV/STI surveillance and program data are used to initiate and inform client services and public health response.

After defining “data to action” and reviewing the core data sources in Maryland, attendees will learn how data reporting and analysis lead to real-time field services and care engagement support for several groups of people: those newly diagnosed with HIV or syphilis, those living with HIV who may not be fully engaged in HIV medical care, and those who may benefit from HIV/STI testing, treatment, and prevention services. Faculty also will discuss core principles of confidentiality and person-first services, review how trend and network analysis inform public health response, and emphasize how clients, providers, and community members are key partners in HIV/STI data to action.

Learning Objectives:
At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe data to action as a public health strategy and Maryland’s data to action activities.
  • Identify the role of HIV/STI surveillance data and other core data sources in data to action.
  • Explain methods for implementing client- and community-level data to action that ensure confidentiality and reduce stigma.
  • State how clients, providers, and community members can partner with public health efforts to achieve the goals of HIV/STI data to action.
