Webinar Description:

The Center for HIV Identification, Prevention and Treatment Services (CHIPTS) at the University of California, Los Angeles and the Center for Strengthening Youth Prevention Paradigms (SYPP Center) of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles invite you to participate in a special webinar on social determinants of health. Presenters Mia Humphreys and Kiesha McCurtis will define and discuss the concept of social determinants of health and provide a framework for HIV service providers and community planners to articulate the many factors that impact HIV risk beyond the individual level.

This webinar is presented in conjunction with the release of a new resource titled “The Role of Social Determinants of Health & HIV,” which can be downloaded here: Social Determinants of Health and HIV (1118) or at www.chla.org/sypp.

After this webinar, you will be able to:

  1. Define social determinants of health within an HIV prevention framework
  2. Define health inequities and describe their relationship to social determinants of health and HIV prevention
  3. Apply learned knowledge of social determinants of health to example case studies in HIV prevention
