Condom distribution programs remain a crucial component of the HIV response. Effective programs can increase condom use, while preventing transmission of HIV and other STIs. Given the focus of Ending the HIV Epidemic by 2030, Health Departments (HD) and Community Based Organizations (CBO) are in a unique position to promote innovative strategies and address persisting gaps in condom distribution programs.
After this virtual workshop, participants will:
- Understand the importance of effective planning for condom distribution interventions in their programs;
- Identify core concepts of availability, accessibility, and acceptability for condom distribution interventions;
- Recognize fundamental principles of health equity in any effective intervention; and
- Develop action plans to implement condom distribution programs given key individual, community, and structural needs.
This workshop is designed for HD HIV prevention program staff and CBO staff. Moreover, the workshop is open ONLY to participants from CDC directly-funded HDs and CBOs in the Southern CBA region of the U.S. (including AL, AR, Baltimore, DC, DE, FL, GA, Houston, KY, LA, MD, MS, NC, OK, SC, TN, TX, VA, and WV).
We hope you will join us for this exciting opportunity.
