Cultural Considerations Working with Hispanic and Latino MSM

This one-day course is designed to train front-line staff (e.g., medical providers, patient navigators/coordinators, HIV test counselors, and other prevention/care counselors) to recognize the impact of cultural responsiveness to the Hispanic/Latinx MSM community related to HIV prevention strategies, sexual health services, engagement and retention in prevention and medical care.  The skills gained in the training will ensure service providers are equipped with appropriate language and knowledge of HLMSM to facilitate best practices for health and wellness, including access to PrEP, PEP and Rapid Access to Treatment.  The training units will include the cultural competence framework, conditions that lead HLMSM to health disparities, barriers to access HIV prevention services and general medical care, Latinx/Hispanic cultural constructs, cross cultural communication, best practices, resources and CLAS Standards.  In the final unit, participants are encouraged to consider how they can integrate the information and skills from the training into their work, and to identify action steps and other considerations to better serve HLMSM clients.
