On July 20, 2015 – The City of Los Angeles AIDS Coordinator’s Office hosted a one-day event, “Addressing the Intersection of Intimate Partner Violence, Trauma, and HIV,” at the California Endowment. The event was attended by over 180 service providers, including domestic violence counselors, housing specialists, HIV testing and prevention providers, healthcare clinicians, policy-makers, and researchers. The presentations and panel discussions explored the impact of violence and trauma among underserved communities who are at risk for or living with HIV and emphasized the importance of providing trauma-informed care as part of HIV service delivery.
CHIPTS was a proud sponsor and collaborator of this event. Congratulations to the AIDS Coordinator’s Office and all of the community partners that helped organize this successful, well-attended event.
