Description

Join this APHA webinar to learn about the co-occurring epidemics (syndemics) of opioid use, HIV, hepatitis, stress and mental health.

The effects of syndemics can interact to intensify the severity or progression of health outcomes. Understanding the complex interactions and inter-relatedness of syndemics allows public health workers to plan interventions to improve health outcomes and address health disparities.
