From Secondary to Spotlight: Prevention with Positives and "High Impact Prevention"

Meeting Description:
The Center for Strengthening Youth Prevention Paradigms (SYPP Center) cordially invites you to the September presentation of our “Third Thursdays Webinar Series.”  This series is designed to augment HIV prevention work for providers serving youth who are disproportionately impacted by HIV/AIDS, particularly young gay men and transgender youth of color.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have recently begun to implement “High Impact Prevention” in response to the National HIV/AIDS Strategy.  This new direction emphasizes HIV prevention with people living with HIV/AIDS, which has been a longtime focus of our guest presenter, Josh Ferrer, Manager of Prevention Services at Cascade AIDS Project.
Learning objectives for this webinar are to:
  1. Articulate the importance of prevention with people living with HIV/AIDS and its role in the current National HIV/AIDS Strategy and the CDC’s new “High Impact Prevention” approach to HIV prevention. 
  2. Identify current strategies used to engage people living with HIV/AIDS in prevention efforts, from initial diagnosis to long-term survival with the disease.
  3. Overcome barriers to discussing HIV/STI prevention concerns with patients/clients living with HIV/AIDS.

Housed at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, the SYPP Center provides capacity building assistance (CBA) services to communities in the Western Region of the United States seeking to prevent HIV/AIDS among youth, with an emphasis on young gay men and transgender youth of color.  The SYPP Center offers a framework for communities to create sustainable structural changes and build healthy community coalitions that respond to local needs.

This project is supported by Cooperative Agreement Number 5U65PS001708-03 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
