Confronting Barriers to Black Leadership in HIV/AIDS Education and Advocacy

Presenter: Georgette King, MPA
Ms. King has served as HPTN's Senior Community Engagement Officer for the past four years. In that role she has developed relationships with national and regional organizations with the goal of facilitating access to information about HPTN's research and encouraging the dissemination of that information within the communities served by those organizations. Through that process diverse community members are educated about the importance of HIV prevention research, its influence on policy and program development, and the ways that community members can become involved in HIV prevention research design and implementation. Ms. King is also the administrator for HPTN's Facebook/HIVptn and Twitter/HIVptn pages.

  • Identify economic, social, and cultural issues that may hinder leaders in Black communities from working to increase HIV education, testing, and treatment
  • Increase capacity to implement and evaluate educational and/or advocacy events that encourage Black communities and other disproportionately affected populations to be stakeholders in ending HIV/AIDS
