10:45 am - 12:15 pm
The THRIVE Promising Practices Session will take place at SYNChronicity 2018 on Monday, April 23 from 10:45AM to 12:15PM.
This session will detail the THRIVE jurisdictions’ response to addressing social and behavioral factors impacting MSM of color where they live, learn, work, and play in order to improve health outcomes and advance health equity. Jurisdictions will share strategies, lessons learned, and promising practices. At the end of this session, participants will:
- Increase understanding of social factors that affect MSM of color engagement in HIV prevention, care, behavioral health, and social services.
- Identify promising practices to improve health outcomes and advance health equity by addressing social and behavioral health needs experienced by MSM of color.
- Describe lessons learned in creating accountable networks of health and wellness providers serving MSM of color.
Each jurisdiction will present for 10 minutes from a PowerPoint presentation regarding promising practices they have implemented to improve HIV prevention, care, behavioral health, and social services for MSM of color at risk for and living with HIV. We are specifically identifying promising practices, and not an overview of the entire program. Each jurisdiction should identify what they believe to be their promising practice(s) and describe them, including challenges experienced and lessons learned. The promising practices may be related to service delivery (e.g. PrEP/nPEP expansion, fourth generation lab-based HIV screening, three site extra genital STD screening, viral suppression strategies, social and behavior change interventions, social media engagement, treatment as prevention methods) or related to organizational process (e.g. community engagement strategies or data collection and management).
