The Health Resources and Services Administration's (HRSA) Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America is a ten-year initiative beginning in FY 2020 to achieve the important goal of reducing new HIV infections to less than 3,000 per year by 2030. As HRSA has noted, community health centers are an integral partner in reducing HIV in the communities they serve. Please join the West Virginia Primary Care Association (WVPCA), HITEQ, MAAETC, and Gilead for an exciting five-part webinar series to assist health centers with preparing to meet the goal of the Ending the HIV Epidemic initiative by sharing useful strategies both with data/HIT and clinical interventions. 

Data is the foundation of an efficient and effective quality improvement program. Utilizing electronic health records (EHRs) and population health tools, such as Azara DRVS, are proven strategies for enhancing workflows, increasing HIV screenings, and generating referrals for people at risk for or living with HIV. Please join Jamal Refuge from HITEQ and Staci Arnold of the WVPCA, to learn more about these approaches and how they can help end the HIV epidemic in your community.
