Addressing HIV and COVID-19: Gaps and Opportunities


December 8, 2021
1–2:30 p.m. EST


Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, people have navigated isolation, loss of employment, housing precarity, and other challenges that hinder successful HIV prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and care. As we move through the fourth wave of the pandemic, the HIV sector continues to respond to changing needs. As a result, a new landscape of HIV services is emerging.

What can we learn from our experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic? Which of these lessons can be leveraged to support our goals in addressing HIV?  

This webinar, hosted in partnership with OHTN, will bring together community-level, clinical, and research experts to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the HIV care cascade; our evolving response to the COVID-19 pandemic; and how to improve services to reach those most affected by both HIV and COVID-19.   

Moderator: Shriya Hari, COVID-19 Information Specialist and Education Coordinator, CATIE
