Ready, Set, Recruit! Enlisting Effective Recruiters for HIV Testing Services
Capacity building assistance (CBA) providers CBA@JSI and Capacity for Health (C4H) join their expertise to provide a rich overview and discussion about how to maximize recruitment efforts to increase HIV testing among high-risk and hard-to-reach populations. This virtual workshop highlights how to leverage the power of word of mouth to identify new infections. It draws upon the CDC-supported Social Network Strategy (SNS) Training which is meant to help organizations maximize existing social, sexual, and drug-use networks to recruit for HIV testing. The workshop focuses on the enlistment of recruiters phase of the SNS strategy and includes an activity to present challenges and solutions for implementation. Familiarity with SNS is helpful for participants follow the discussion but is not required for participation.
