Session: Innovative HIV Interventions Among Vulnerable Populations
4318.0: Tuesday, November 07, 2006: 4:30 PM-6:00 PM
Innovative HIV Interventions Among Vulnerable Populations
25-plus years after the beginning of the epidemic, many populations have become resistant to traditional intervention strategies. To continue to try to reach our most vulnerable populations, innovation in interventions is needed. This session will focus on inventive intervention tactics for reaching at-risk populations.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the session, the participant (learner) in this session will be able to: 1. Recognize 3 emerging strategies for targeting HIV interventions to vulnerable communities. 2. Assess the applicability of inventive intervention strategies to targeted communities. 3. Describe the unique issues related to HIV prevention and care among vulnerable communities.
