  • Patient navigators

Background About This Intervention

Sister to Sister: TCYH is a one-on-one brief intervention between provider and patient that gives women the skills and information they need to reduce their risk of HIV. The intervention seeks to empower women to take control of their health by choosing PrEP and/or using condoms consistently to prevent HIV and uses CDC’s new #ShesWell campaign to help reinforce a variety of healthful messages. Providers seeking to implement Sister to Sister: TCYH at their sites can register for the Training of Facilitators,
which includes two components:

  • A self-paced prerequisite E-Learning module
  • A two-day live, instructor-led virtual training
