We’ll provide an in-depth look at 3 of the 10 funded projects, sharing knowledge of challenges to using Social Media and successful approaches. We’ll also describe how you can get training and technical assistance if you are considering implementing social media and mobile technologies to improve HIV care outcomes in your jurisdiction.
