Callen-Lorde Community Health Center is New York City’s leading health care facility dedicated to meeting the needs of LGBTQ people and those with HIV. The workshop will first focus on the HIV/AIDS Strategy goals for reducing disparities and how to address them at different points along the HIV care continuum. The discussion will then center on drilling down your data and examining where disparities exist. From there, we will discuss tools that can be used to build your agency-level treatment cascade and engage staff in addressing disparities. These tools include the NQC-developed disparities calculator and the clinical quality management plan. We will discuss ways to share your improvement projects with your peers and the lessons learned by the presenters as they have pursued addressing disparities.
