Working with HIV Positive Persons

Cultural Competency:
Working with HIV Positive Persons

Increasing access to health services and the likelihood that people will seek services is crucial to improving health outcomes.

For HIV prevention and treatment to be effective, the unique needs and life contexts of those who are marginalized because of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, age, or gender must be sensitively addressed to help ensure people are comfortable seeking services and asking for help.

Cultural competence must be demonstrated by program staff, as well as those delivering prevention care services and treatment programs to HIV positive clients.

This training will provide strategies to participants, increasing their ability to provide more culturally competent services to HIV positive clients.

After completion of this training participants will be able to:

  • Provide information on how to erase any preconceived ideology of HIV positive persons that can be detrimental to providing effective care
  • Increase awareness regarding the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary to care for people living with HIV/AIDS
  • Practice culturally competent behaviors that are both mutually accepting and affirming
    Increase their understanding of the relationships between cultural competency and health
  • Identify resources for developing skills to better provide services for the HIV positive populations

Our trainings are available to directly funded community based organizations, some state funded organizations and organizations working with HIV positive and at risk populations, free of charge.

Please request trainings using the CBA Request Information System (CRIS) and ask for NCHP.

In some circumstances, if you are unable to access the system directly, your local health department may be able to request on your behalf.
