Models, Maps and Measures- What Advocates Need to Know About New Strategies Assessing Social Determinants of HIV

July 20, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

An interactive discussion between advocates and researchers from the NIAID-funded project on improving how we assess the social determinants of HIV.  Social determinants of HIV are the situational and societal influences that may contribute to increased risk of HIV. The expanding pipeline for HIV prevention was one of the driving factors motivating the NIH to fund an initiative examining new ways of measuring social determinants- showcasing how new tools and methodologies can help determine the best ways to introduce and scale-up prevention options. The interactive discussion focused on two strategies: using models to determine what factors enhance the effectiveness of cash transfers in adolescent girls and young women in South Africa and the use of GPS tracking to determine barriers to PrEP access in young MSM in NYC. In addition to listening to the conversation, we encourage you to check out the resources shared on the call.
