End the Syndemic Tennessee Goals

End the Syndemic Tennessee has four goals:

  1.  Increase combined screening of HIV, sexually transmitted infections, substance use disorder and viral hepatitis at individual points of care
  2. Increase access to appropriate HIV, sexually transmitted infection, substance use disorder, and viral hepatitis prevention services including harm reduction
  3. Increase engagement in appropriate HIV, sexually transmitted infection, substance use disorder, and viral hepatitis treatment services
  4. Build resilient communities through coordinated care systems and by reducing social and structural barriers to health

Strategies to reach these goals will be identified through regional planning meetings, surveys, key informant interviews, and focus groups.
