Join us for any or all of Implementing Model Practices in Your Community, a three-part webinar series where you will hear directly from your peers how they implemented programs to improve the health of their community. Your questions about these programs will be answered in real time from the presenters. Implementing Model Practices in Your Community: Advancing HIV Prevention and Care Join us for the first webinar in the three-part Implementing Model Practices in Your Community series to learn more about innovative approaches to HIV prevention and care. The Florida Department of Health in Okaloosa County (DOH-Okaloosa) will discuss their efforts to integrate pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) into their clinical services. Their approach and resources—including an implementation plan, clinical protocols and guidelines, staff toolkits, and documentation guides—have become the model for local health departments across Florida, more than 20 of which have utilized their tools and/or sought guidance directly from DOH-Okaloosa. The Florida Department of Health in Broward County (DOH-Broward) will share their approach to linking HIV positive pregnant women to care, eliminating perinatal transmission of HIV, and ensuring that all HIV exposed newborns are screened after birth. Through improved surveillance, public health detailing, disease intervention, and case management, DOH-Broward is closing the gaps in HIV prevention and care for women and newborns.
