Situational Analysis: A Key Component of Planning to End the HIV Epidemic

November 12th, 2020 | 03:00pm to 04:30pm EST

On November 12, NASTAD hosted a webinar, Situational Analysis: A Key Component of Planning to End the HIV Epidemic. The webinar provided an overview of CDC Program Guidance on conducting or updating the jurisdictional situational analysis as a part of the EHE planning process. As health departments work to finalize EHE plans, it is imperative to ensure their plan is based on a comprehensive assessment of the HIV prevention and care programs’ strengths, weaknesses, and needs. This webinar discussed strategies to ensure jurisdiction’s situational analysis is robust and serves as a bridge between the epidemiological profile and pillar activities. NASTAD and the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) discussed ways to ensure data informs EHE planning and implementation. The Massachusetts Department of Health shared lessons learned during the evolution of their situational analysis process – from the draft submission to present day.
