Mapping allows community members and organizations to plan better management of resources, develop and implement interventions and programs, and resolve resource conflicts. This webinar will delve into how mapping social determinants of health (SDOH)  can drive HIV prevention and intervention. To illustrate this, the webinar will provide an overview of the Alive! Maryland 2023 Community Mapping Toolkit, "Visualizing Health Disparities to Advance Public Health."

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe how mapping toolkits can inform community members when responding to health, systemic, and societal needs.

  • Discuss mapping strategies for HIV surveillance in Maryland.

  • Explain the mapping process used to help identify and evaluate the strengths, assets, needs, and challenges of a specific community.

  • Identify mapping strategies to develop solutions and interventions addressing social inequities that impact HIV.
