All people living with HIV contend with nutrition issues and deserve expert attention to optimize their diet, immunity, quality of life, and overall health outcomes, and to avoid unnecessary malnutrition, complications, and death. Implementing the HIV/AIDS Evidence-based Nutrition Practice Guideline (Guideline) will be an essential component to establishing a successful HIV nutrition care program. This interactive workshop will help grantees of different settings and capacities prioritize for implementation and improvement the 19 recommendations of the Guideline that was developed by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (found at www.adaevidencelibrary.com or http://guidelines.gov/content.aspx?id=25317). Grantees will identify and share common barriers and solutions to better integrate evidence-based HIV nutrition recommendations into their settings.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to prioritize the 19 major recommendations of the HIV/AIDS Evidence-based Nutrition Practice Guideline for implementation according to their needs.
  • Participants will be able to identify barriers to implementing recommendations.
  • Participants will be able to determine at least two practical solutions for resolving barriers.
