Description

December 05, 2014
Viral suppression is the goal of HIV medical care. Yet, in 2011, only 40% of people living with HIV received HIV medical care and only 30% achieved viral suppression. Many persons living with HIV are not in medical care or are undiagnosed. When patients with HIV are in medical care, they are more likely to be prescribed antiretroviral medications, achieve viral suppression, and have a normal lifespan. Clinicians play a critical role in helping their patients move through the HIV care continuum by influencing the likelihood of patients engaging in medical care. During this COCA Webinar, clinicians will learn about current strategies to engage patients in HIV testing, counseling and medical care.
