2014 HIV Behavioral Research Forum
On Tuesday, June 23rd 2014 CHIPTS hosted an HIV Behavioral Research Community Forum addressing the changing face of HIV/AIDS in Los Angeles County and the research opportunities ahead.
Los Angeles City Council President Herb J. Wesson made opening comments and Mario J. Pérez, Director of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Division of HIV and STD Programs (DHSP) provided a framing address considering DHSP’s programmatic and research priorities.
In a series of round table discussions, we considered:
- Structural determinants impacting health and well-being: PrEP, PEP, and health care access
- Enhancing linkage, retention, and reengagement in care: Novel strategies to engage in self-care and complementary provider interventions
- Behavioral economics: Moving beyond contingency management
- Implementation & translation: From theory to practice
Participants included HIV researchers, social scientists, public health officials, community based agency representatives, and community advocates.CHIPTS Community Forum Agenda (117)
