The Social Determinants of Health: Approaches to the HIV Epidemic Toolkit – A toolkit providing an overview of Social Determinants of Health and approaches for reducing HIV-related disparities and their collective impact on vulnerable populations. Strategies in this toolkit can be used to increase awareness and direct prevention initiatives. The Toolkit is a unique resource. Rather than solely addressing communities themselves, it was developed at a state level for individuals and organizations working with and through communities.

The Toolkit is an information source available to interested parties across the state. Social Determinants of Health (SDH) are defined in the toolkit and information is given on raising awareness (through social media) about the role SDH play in the spread of HIV and HIV-related disparities. The Toolkit consolidates multiple sources of information into one easily accessible electronic location.

The Social Determinants of Health Toolkit was prepared by The Texas HIV Syndicate: Public Awareness Priority Group with Stan Baker, Arianni Becerra, Nike Blue, Alex Byrd, Jackie Bzostek, Jeanett Deas-Calhoun, Ana Colin-Hernandez, Tom Cassady, Charlene Doria-Ortiz, Herman Finley, Nell Gaither, Helen Turner-Goldenberg, Gregg Gunter, Lionel Hillard, Ashley Innes, Marsha Jones, Markelse, Jordan, Robyn Koch, Sara Mendez, Shawna Stewart, Steven Vargas, and John Waller in association with the Texas Department of State Health Services.
