Join ICAP at Columbia University on Thursday, July 1, from 9 – 10:30 am (ET) for a webinar to discuss population surveys and how their findings provide critical information on the status of the HIV epidemic and help inform the way forward.
The webinar will consider approaches to survey methodology, challenges in reaching men through HIV programs, and insights from measuring population community viral load. Survey adaptations for the COVID-19 pandemic and community mobilization will also be explored.
This webinar is being held in conjunction with the launch of the upcoming August 1st JAIDS supplement on the Population-based HIV Impact Assessment (PHIA) surveys. The PHIA Project is funded by the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), with surveys led by Ministries of Health with support from CDC and ICAP.
