We now have more tools than ever to prevent the transmission of HIV and service providers play an important role in communicating this information with their clients. Throughout this course, participants will learn about the biology of HIV transmission, how social and structural factors influence HIV risk, and what highly effective HIV prevention strategies exist today, including the effect of HIV treatment and an undetectable viral load as a highly effective HIV prevention strategy. Participants will come away with an ability to accurately discuss HIV transmission risk and prevention strategies with their clients through the lens of harm reduction and sexual and reproductive health. Participants will also learn what service providers can do to address the social and structural factors that influence HIV risk.
This course is delivered online by a CATIE health educator, providing instruction through a combination of interactive e-learning units, readings, videos, and discussion board assignments. The course culminates in an online meeting where participants can learn and discuss implications for their daily work.
Learners will receive a certificate upon completion of all learning activities
