His Health, an interactive online community where providers can learn, share, and nurture a lifetime of meaningful patient engagement for Black gay men.
What is His Health?
His Health is the product of collaboration among Black gay men, providers, public health professionals, federal health agencies, LGBT advocates, and community stakeholders. This dynamic training tool provides expert-led continuing education courses, portraits of innovative models of care, and a plethora of evidence-based resources to support the delivery of high-quality, culturally affirming healthcare services for Black men who have sex with men (MSM). By fostering a sense of shared responsibility among providers, patients, and care-system stakeholders, His Health is the medium through which we will improve the wellness of Black gay men together.
Why His Health?
For too long, public health stakeholders have placed the responsibility for reducing HIV transmission among Black gay men solely upon the patient. Healthcare providers’ demand for efficacious tools and resources are widely unmet. NASTAD has partnered with the Health Resources and Service’s Administration’s HIV/AIDS Bureau (HRSA-HAB) to do something about it. Together, we have engaged various stakeholders to develop an inventory of effective tools, models of care, resources, and trainings designed to help providers feel confident about their abilities to offer superior healthcare to Black MSM patient communities. The result is His Health, an interactive online community where providers can learn, share, and nurture a lifetime of meaningful patient engagement.
