Social Networks Strategy (SNS-718)

Social Networks Strategy (SNS) is a recruitment strategy where services (e.g., HIV CTR, EBI Interventions, etc.) are disseminated through the community by enlisting HIV-positive or high-risk HIV-negative persons (i.e., recruiters) to encourage people in their network (i.e., network associates) to be tested for HIV or to join an HIV prevention intervention. The strategy is based on the concept that individuals are linked together to form large social networks, and that infectious diseases often spread through these networks. SNS is proven as a strategy for reaching people beyond current outreach partners. Participants of this course will learn how to integrate this strategy into their existing programs in order to recruit persons who are most at risk of HIV into their programs.
