SBIRT ScaleUP Meeting and Intensive Training

The South Africa HIV ATTC is hosting a meeting in Cape Town on August 23rd to explore ways to scale up and sustain research-driven training in Screening and Brief Interventions (SBIRT) for substance use disorders (SUDs). This meeting is particularly focused on facilitating the overlap of SBIRT trainings with PEPFAR's 90-90-90 targets by addressing SUDs as a psychosocial determinant of adherence in multi-drug resistant TB and HIV. On August 24th the South Africa HIV ATTC will host an SBIRT intensive training course for health professionals. Attendees will gain knowledge and skills in assessment, screening, brief interventions, and referral to treatment for people living with HIV. After this training, attendees will be able to apply these skills to the care of their patients in order to improve HIV treatment outcomes through strategies such as increased detection and interventions.
