Webinar: Center for Engaging Black MSM Across the Care Continuum (CEBACC) Focus Group Updates & Review

The Center for Engaging Black MSM Across the Care Continuum (CEBACC) will identify, compile, and disseminate best practices and effective models for HIV clinical care and treatment across the HIV care continuum, in order to increase the capacity, quality, and effectiveness of healthcare providers to screen, diagnose, link, and retain Black men who have sex with men (BMSM) in HIV clinical care.

We conducted our first webinar to provide updates on our progress, and even offer more information about the work we have been doing. During this webinar we explored key themes from our focus group discussions between health care providers and Black gay men and other men who have sex with men (MSM). From August to November, we have conducted 19 focus groups with Black gay men/MSM as well as their providers. We shared an overview of our findings such as emerging themes, successful strategies and challenges both groups faced.
