Webinar: Community Health Workers (CHWs) in HIV Services: Insights from Virginia
Community Health Workers have the potential to improve outcomes on the HIV care continuum, but what does that look like in a Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) funded agency? What is their scope of work and how can they be funded? During this interactive webinar course, the second in a series and presented on Nov. 16, 2017, Leonard Recupero and Susan Carr from the Virginia Department of Health, HIV Services Unit, shared their experiences integrating CHWs into these RWHAP services; working with CHWs to enhance HIV prevention and care services; and improve outcomes along the HIV care continuum. The webinar discussed funding, program planning, and the scope of work for CHWs in HIV care.
