  6. 6.  By addressing social determinants of health, we don’t “band-aid” solutions for clients. We utilize a holistic approach to care and prevention. We challenge long-standing paradigms in healthcare and social work that continue to instigate HIV stigma for clients and our communities. We consider root causes for HIV risk and can create programming to address these causes.
  7. 7.  NARC to include social determinants in work plan and share research during May meeting. Future collaboration between NARC and QUAC to look at CareWare data to identify trends among clients and possibly ask more in-depth questions in assessment and client survey. REHD to look at the intersections of race, ethnicity and gender with HIV risk/access to care. Speakers will be present at the 2010 Iowa HIV, STD, and Hepatitis Conference to discuss social determinants.
