African Americans continue to experience the greatest burden of HIV compared to other races and ethnicities in the United States. In 2017, Blacks/African Americans accounted for 13% of the U.S. population. Thus, the number of African Americans living with HIV infection was found to be almost eight times higher than the rate for their Caucasian counterparts. In this webinar, we will learn about the etiology of the experience, prevention methods, duty to inform, co-occurring mental health diagnoses, and working with African American HIV clients from a culturally competent perspective. This webinar provides 1.5 CE hours of HIV & 1.5 CE Hours of Ethics.

Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Define the basics of HIV/AIDS from a biological perspective
  • Identify Medical/Social & Professional interventions
  • Determine Cultural Influences that impact working with the African-American population with the diagnosis of HIV
  • Implement appropriate interventions based on Cultural Competence and Cultural Humility
