HIV 101 for Language Workers

As we honor the 40th anniversary of The Denver Principles we are launching a new virtual HIV 101 training for language workers. 

This intensive, two-day course training will focus on providing language workers with an easy & comprehensive introduction to HIV/AIDs terminology, history, current science, and advocacy through an intersectional lens, centering Latinx communities. Our goal is to build a basic foundation of HIV knowledge for language workers increasing their capacity to support people living with and affected by HIV, affirm the experiences of people living with HIV regardless of language proficency, and advocate for more just inclusion of people living with HIV.

At the end of the training, participants will receive a certificate of completion and have the option of being added to a virtual database where community-based organizations can contact them for language services.
