Addressing the Intersections of HIV and Health Inequities: Considerations for Providers

It has been 40 years since the first known case of HIV was documented and we have come a long way in the past 40 years. HIV is now a chronic disease, we have highly effective HIV prevention options like PEP and PrEP, and we are now able to offer long-acting injectables for HIV treatment and soon HIV prevention. While we can celebrate these achievements, HIV health disparities persist. We see that communities who experience multiple forms of oppression have not benefitted as much from medical advances in HIV treatment and prevention. In this episode, Dr. Antonio E. Urbina, Medical Director for CEI’s HIV Primary Care and Prevention Center of Excellence, speaks with two experts to learn more about these disparities and what providers can do to address them: Kenyon Farrow, a public health and infectious disease activist, writer, and editor, and Dr. Sabrina Gard, a primary care provider specializing in HIV.
