HIV DATF website forums

We thought we’d take a moment to give you a sort of “site map” of the forum/discussion board section of our website, since it’s been revamped a little bit.

We created the forum section of the website with the hope that other people in the provider community would pitch in and share their resources, information, and opinions.  997,272 website hits later, this really hasn’t been the case. It’s somewhat disappointing, since one of the goals was to get people actively participating so this is a community site, not just Susan’s ideas on what’s important. So please – give it a shot. It’s as easy as hitting “send” to forward an email.  ANYONE (including you!) CAN POST TO THE FORUMS. If you need a refresher on how to post to the forums, please go here: https://hivdatf.org/about/

Resources | online, L.A.-specific, community forum  

This area is available for posts about program information and about Los Angeles resources in general, as well as online resources. This forum provides detailed information and information about support groups, and program-level (as opposed to agency-level) resources. For links to agencies in Los Angeles County please go to the resources section of the HIV DATF website. Also, there is a section in which folks can put the word out that they are looking to place a client and need help doing it; where agencies can announce that they have space for clients available; and where folks who are trying to get community feedback (ie: surveys or action alerts) can post.  If you have something in this category which doesn’t fit into one of the subforums below, post it here.
