The Links: HIV in Maryland — Epidemiology, Intersectionality, Engagement, and Equity

February 24 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST

How do we end the HIV epidemic in Maryland? Advancements in prevention, care, and treatment have made ending the HIV epidemic in the US an achievable goal. Meeting this goal for Maryland and achieving optimal health outcomes through the reduction of HIV transmission requires awareness of the state of HIV and using data proactively to identify gaps and strengthen linkages to HIV prevention, care, and treatment efforts statewide.

This webinar will equip providers and health staff with an overview of the state of HIV in Maryland by examining the epidemiology, the current gaps in the HIV care continuum, and utilizing data to improve the effectiveness of care.
