HIV/STI Prevention Education: Case Management Skills; Facilitation; Outreach Skills

What will I learn in this program?

The purpose of the HIV/ Prevention Studies Specialty Certificates is to provide training in the knowledge-base and skills necessary to address the HIV/ epidemic. Our focus is on the needs of diverse and low-income communities. We use a public health approach with a harm reduction perspective in our programs to address individual, community, cultural, political, and social/economic factors in HIV/ education. Understanding the epidemic within the context of health disparities is a central theme in our curriculum.

Students in the HIV/STI Prevention program can earn certificates in the following specialty areas; Case Management, Facilitation Skills, and Outreach Skills. Each certificate focuses on a specific skill set supported by the core curriculum in HIV/STI prevention, health education and promotion, and the impact of health disparities.
