The summit will focus on critical national health issues and recommendations on HIV, viral hepatitis, Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs), substance use and mental health. The purpose for developing a National Hispanic/Latinx Health Action Agenda is to provide a national framework that will contain short, medium and long-term objectives, and recommendations for each identified national issue.
BUILD NATIONAL CONSENSUS
Build national consensus from the National Hispanic/Latinx Health Leadership on the Health Policy Agenda. This goal will be met with the early 2020 summit agreement that will adopt an implementation plan with prioritized, concrete plans of actions, which will advance the national agenda for the next three years.
EDUCATE & ENGAGE OPINION LEADERS
Educate & Engage Opinion Leaders (policy makers, civic, religious, media, etc.) on the Agenda and build support for its implementation. There will be community mobilization around the country to disseminate local, county, state and territorial Actions Plans.
IDENTIFY PRIORITY ACTIONS
Identify priority actions from the Health Action Agenda to focus on for 2020-2021. After the summit in 2020, two or three actions items will be identified, which will form the basis for the national, state and local level work for the next three years.
CONSOLIDATE A NATIONAL NETWORK
Consolidate a National Hispanic/Latinx Leadership Network to monitor implementation and accountability.
The Summit is part of a series of activities that started in 2018 and will continue while recommendations are implemented:
