The National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) is launching an initiative to establish evidence for engaging community health workers to close the gap between antiretroviral therapy prescription and viral suppression, a critical step to preventing the transmission of HIV, improving lives and ending the HIV epidemic. The goal of this conference/webinar is to bring together researchers, health professionals, nurse scientists and community health workers to identify research gaps, learn from each other and explore collaborations.
The meeting is especially timely, given the recent national commitment of resources and intention to end the HIV epidemic in the U.S. in the next 10 years. In addition, interest in community health workers and programs is booming globally, including in the U.S., evidenced by the surge in programs, training and funding opportunities. It is our hope that this meeting will provide some clarity on how research can strengthen these ongoing efforts.
