15 Minute Focus: Moving Beyond Homogeneous Messages

How can we can incorporate diversity and inclusion through the messages and interventions we value and educate in our communities? How can we support diverse communities, in particular communities that have been marginalized and excluded in the past? Many communities have not had access to or may not be reached by mainstream HIV prevention messages. National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is a great opportunity for all of us to think about how we can make our HIV prevention messages diverse and inclusive. The NNHAAD committee has implemented a diverse and inclusive framework that models an important way to adapt messages to increase their uptake. Check out this short webinar to learn more!

Stop the Frantic Posting: Harness the Power of Social Media for your HIV Prevention Program

Social media can also be overwhelming, confusing, and time consuming without a clear way to know if it is a good use of staff time and actually helping your program. To help guide and focus these efforts a social media plan or strategy is critical for CBOs who have complex work plans with multiple activities and audiences. The CDC’s Health Communicator’s Social Media Toolkit recommends that the keys to effective social media outreach are identifying target audience(s), determining objective(s), knowing outlet(s) and deciding on the amount of resources (time and effort) that can be invested.
