Activity Description

While strides have been made to slow the HIV epidemic, pockets of the population are still disproportionately affected by HIV progression, undertreatment, or disruptions in linkage to care. Underserved people living with HIV face unique challenges to receiving appropriate HIV screening and treatment, such as discrimination in the health-system or their communities, low health literacy, or barriers to continuity of care. This activity will examine the sociocultural challenges and root causes of the many disparities that are present in the US for people living with HIV. The pharmacist’s role in overcoming obstacles associated with these challenges will be discussed.

Learning Objectives

The target audience for this activity includes pharmacists. At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

  • Examine the importance of a culturally competent framework to optimize care in underserved HIV populations.
  • Describe cultural and social context for medical mistrust in underserved patients living with HIV.
  • Recognize potential ways to optimize adherence in patients with misconceptions regarding antiretrovirals.
  • Discuss innovative tools for retention in care in patients living with HIV.
