Webinar on Quality Improvement in Combination Prevention
In its multiannual strategic framework, AIDS Action Europe (AAE) decided to work on the topic of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and in particular combination prevention*. In 2018-2019 the focus is on improving the quality of combination prevention interventions.
After publishing the Implementation Guide on how to use the tools developed in the Joint Action Quality Action (2013-2016), AAE is hosting a webinar on quality improvement in combination prevention.
The webinar offers you an insight into the benefits of structured quality improvement. We will introduce practical tools, encourage exchange among the participants and inform you about how you can get support to apply the tools in your work.
The webinar is scheduled for 12:30 PM (CEST) May 14th 2019. Login details please get here. The webinar will be conducted in English.
Further details on AAE's SRHR project and the definition of Combination Prevention and Chemsex are described here: Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Work Plan (2018-2019).
*Combination Prevention is defined by the UNAIDS Prevention Reference Group as “...rights-based, evidence-informed, and community-owned programmes that use a mix of biomedical, behavioural, and structural interventions, prioritized to meet the current HIV prevention needs of particular individuals and communities, so as to have the greatest sustained impact on reducing new infections.”
Combination prevention is a combination of biomedical, behavioural and structural interventions, such as promoting & conducting testing, PrEP provisions, early initiation of treatment (TasP), initiatives against discrimination or to improve access to health services etc.
