HIV, HCV, STI, and COVID-19-Related Stigma, Racism, Homophobia, and Transphobia: Intersections, Social Determinants, and Structures

September 21 @ 1:30 pm2:30 pm EDT

In this session, participants will learn how stigma, racism, homophobia, and transphobia create interrelated oppressions that fuel, amplify, and reinscribe the ongoing marginalization of underserved populations in the U.S.. Speakers will discuss how these oppressions are multifaceted, driven by social norms and policies at the national, state, community, interpersonal, and individual levels, and have historically driven disparate burdens of HIV, HCV, STIs, and now COVID-19. Special emphasis will be placed on addressing the marginalization of individuals and groups living at the intersection of underserved populations, identities, age groups, and disease states, and the unique stressors introduced by the global COVID-19 pandemic. Speakers will describe current policies and programs being developed and currently in place to address social determinants, including gentrification, homelessness, poverty, and under/unemployment, in an effort to facilitate unfettered access to prevention, treatment, and care services and improve health outcomes.
