Plenary 4: SYNCing to End the Epidemics Through Service Providers
AIDS Service Organizations/Community-Based Organizations, social service agencies, and health centers employ the frontline workforce implementing national strategies and services to end the epidemics. The effects of HIV, STIs, viral hepatitis, and COVID-19 are only amplified in communities by the social determinants of health. Operating in a pandemic has placed extraordinary stress on the safety net services and the frontline workforce caring for underserved communities, all the while illuminating the vulnerabilities and resiliencies of the systems of care. This plenary session will explore how service providers are advancing the goals of the national strategies, addressing social determinants of health, and ensuring the resiliency of the frontline service providers.
