About the Course:
This article discusses the tremendous biomedical advancements in HIV prevention and treatment that have led to efforts to end the HIV epidemic. It goes on to recognize that the significant mental health and substance use problems among people living with HIV (PLWH) and people vulnerable to acquiring HIV are a barrier to this goal. Integration of mental health screening and care into all HIV testing and treatment settings is discussed as a way to strengthen HIV prevention and care outcomes.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Mental Health and HIV and AIDS-the Need for an Integrated Response created by Robert H. Remiena, PhD, Michael J. Stirratt, PhD, and Nadia Nguyen, PhD in 2019.
