This webinar discusses a global public health evaluation program of the human immunodeficiency virus regarding its spread within minority and young adult communities. It focuses on treatment options and reducing the AIDS stigma through education for those living with the disease.
Disease prevention programs strive to identify intervention methods to increase access to healthcare. While HIV infections and AIDS globally impact children and adults, communities also struggle to understand the risks associated with this infectious disease and preventative methods.
Prevention efforts to target low-income communities have resulted in effective improvements when we measure the overall success rate in reducing new HIV cases. The momentum in mobilizing programs for the at-risk population may ease community uncertainty through education thus increasing resources and needed care. The potential outcome is to decrease the number of infections per year.
This presentation will provide an overview of HIV prevention programs and their impact within the minority communities. Included will be an overview of the current state of HIV/AIDS globally, the impact of social media and prevention efforts, and what community-driven prevention measures are working to reduce the stigma of this disease.
