Noting that community engagement is paramount to the success of the Ending the HIV Epidemic initiative (EHE), CDC has announced four virtual Regional Community Engagement Town Hall Sessions to educate, encourage, and empower community members to participate in local EHE planning processes.
EHE is a bold plan that requires broad and robust community engagement. CDC, in conjunction with its funded Capacity Building Assistance Provider Network Technical Assistance Providers, is convening the series of virtual Regional Community Engagement Town Hall Sessions this month.
CDC is specifically inviting “new voices” and previously unheard local community members and organizations to these regional town halls, specifically, representatives of priority populations such as people with HIV, African Americans/Blacks, Hispanics/Latinos, men who have sex with men, and transgender individuals. Stakeholders from the 57 EHE Phase I jurisdictions including local community members, HIV planning group members, community-based organizations, and health departments are invited to register for the town hall in their region. Share this flyer (PDF, 430 KB) with stakeholders in your community who may wish to participate.
