No health issue stands alone. HIV, STIs, substance use disorder, and viral hepatitis are increasingly recognized as a syndemic. Learn why it is important for Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) Jurisdictions to consider how they can integrate services using a Syndemic approach.
Attendees will learn more about the benefits of a Syndemic approach and technical assistance resources available to assist with designing and implementing a Syndemic approach.
By the end of this webinar, you will be able to:
Describe three core concepts of Syndemic Theory
Explain two reasons for why it makes sense to approach HIV/STIs/VH/SUD as a Syndemic rather than separate epidemics
Discuss two examples of applying a Syndemic approach to integrate services
Identify at least two of the lessons learned from planning and implementing a Syndemic approach
