Starting in April 2020, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Mycotic Diseases Branch hosted a series of 7 webinars on Advanced HIV Care in the context of COVID-19 supported by the CDC Foundation. Sessions addressed a global audience of healthcare providers and those working in public health and lasted until July 2020.
