Opening Plenary: Rebounding From The COVID-19 Pandemic With A Holistic Response To HIV
La Salle Ballroom-3rd Floor Virtual
1CE
 

Description: This 60-minute plenary session will take place during the 34th National Conference on Social Work and HIV/AIDS and will highlight the pivotal role social workers play in delivering holistic, client-centered HIV care. The session will emphasize how this holistic approach has been adopted as the cornerstone of the National HIV Strategy (2022-2025), as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mental health and well-being of people living with HIV (PLWH) and those at risk for HIV comes to the fore. The session will examine how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the mental health of PLWH and their ability to remain in care, particularly those who are most vulnerable. It will also explore the key role social workers have played and can continue to play in bringing them back into care. Practical strategies for social workers to offer supportive mental-health care and other client-centered interventions to build resilience and improve overall health outcomes of PLWH will be explored. The impact of COVID-19 on the mental health of social workers themselves, and strategies for coping, will also be discussed.

Objectives/Key Takeaways

  • Recognize the key role of social workers in delivering integrated, client-focused services that support clients in managing their health across the status-neutral care continuum
  • Acknowledge the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mental health of PLWH and those at risk for HIV and understand how this affects their ability to remain in care
  • Explore the extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative effect on viral suppression and the key role social workers can play in bringing people back into care
  • Identify the innovative strategies that social workers have employed to cope with the “new normal” and examine the usefulness of these strategies in a post-COVID-19 pandemic world
  • Acknowledge the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on social workers themselves and explore ways to support them

Opening Plenary: From Risk to Reasons: Reframing HIV Prevention and Care for Black Women
La Salle Ballroom -3rd Floor Virtual

Description:

ViiV Healthcare’s Risk to Reasons initiative is designed to reframe and refocus HIV prevention and care for Black women. Co-created with ViiV Healthcare and Black women living with and working in HIV, Risk to Reasons sets out to develop new messages, new messengers, and new methods to increase awareness and action around HIV prevention for Black women of cis and trans experience. Guided by advocates across the country, the initiative creates content, funds community action, and connects advocates to change the impact of HIV in Black communities and get more Black women connected to prevention and care.

The Opening Plenary Brunch will showcase Take My Hand, ViiV Healthcare’s impact theater piece and community activation that focuses exclusively on the urgency and hope around Black women and HIV, to set the stage for an interactive conversation about the problem with “risk” and a discussion of how to better serve Black women’s HIV prevention and care needs.

Opening Plenary Session Address



Description: The National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS or Strategy) was developed by the White House Office of National AIDS Policy (ONAP) in collaboration with federal partners and with input from the HIV community across the country. Interested parties and organizations throughout the federal government and those engaged in work in many different communities have helped shape the strategy's goals, objectives, and strategies. ONAP extends the gratitude and appreciation of the White House to everyone who made thoughtful recommendations and recommitted to the Strategy’s vision and goals. ONAP also offers thanks to the team at the Office of Infectious Disease and HIV/AIDS Policy in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for its many contributions to developing the Strategy. 


The National HIV/AIDS Strategy is not a budget document and does not imply approval for any specific action under Executive Order 12866 or the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Strategy will inform the Federal budget and regulatory development processes within the context of the goals articulated in the President’s Budget. All activities included in the Strategy are subject to budgetary constraints and other approvals, including the weighing of priorities and available resources by the Administration in formulating its annual budget and by Congress in legislating appropriations.
