Enhanced comprehensive HIV prevention planning (ECHPP) demonstration project: Experiences shifting to high impact prevention
Description: This presentation will discuss strategies being used to support prioritizing prevention activities to increase HIV impact. After a brief overview of ECHPP, three health department grantees will present their decision making approach and describe successes and changes at local health systems to support these modified approaches to prevention. Case studies from the field will also describe strategies to increase impact of HIV prevention and care resources via sustainable structural changes, improved coordination among partners, and beneficial approaches to engaging communities.
Lessons Learned: This presentation will describe emerging promising practices that have been supportive to the ECHPP grantees during planning and implementation phases. They will cover decision making, strategic partnerships, policies to support HIV prevention, data use to improve service delivery, and strategies for coordination of an expanded HIV prevention portfolio.
Recommendations: Lessons learned from the implementation of ECHPP should be shared widely to other health departments implementing program activity in support of reaching the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy
