Duration: 90 minutes

This webinar will be presented in English with Spanish and ASL interpretation. / Este seminario web se presentará en inglés con interpretación en español.

Description: With the movement towards trauma-informed care, many community health center-based HIV and sexual health programs are looking for ways to better support their patients who are experiencing intimate partner violence (IPV) or other intersecting forms of exploitation and abuse. HIV care and sexual health providers see the ways that violence and trauma lead to worse health outcomes for their patients and can make it more difficult for patients to stay engaged in care. This webinar will feature providers and advocates from across the country working to promote the health and well-being of survivors living with HIV in clinical settings – and their communities. 

Learning Objectives: As a result of this webinar participants will be able to:

  • Strengthen their understanding of the intersecting barriers to health access for survivors of violence who are living with HIV.

  • Identify two ways to promote health and well-being of survivors in clinical settings. 

  • Engage in partnership building with supportive community-based services.
