HRSA HAB Integrating HIV Innovative Practices Webinar Series on Replicating Innovative HIV Care Strategies in the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program
Session 3 – Innovative HIV Care Strategies for People Experiencing Incarceration
When: Wednesday, September 28, 2022, 2:30-3:30 pm ET
Description: An estimated one in seven people with HIV leave correctional facilities each year in the United States. Many struggle to access care and treatment upon release, with as many as 95 percent experiencing a gap in HIV treatment. Although public health interventions centered on HIV care and treatment within correctional settings have increased over time, more programs are necessary to address the interconnected needs of people with HIV who have been incarcerated, both during their incarceration and after their release.
This webinar features, the Maricopa County Jail Project, an intervention designed to improve linkage to care and improve health outcomes for people with HIV who are experiencing incarceration. The intervention seeks to improve HIV care access for people experiencing incarceration by decreasing the wait time between incarceration and/or diagnosis, to the start of treatment; and supports clients in reaching viral suppression through pre-release planning, education, and linkage to community services upon release.
“Innovative HIV Care Strategies to Engage People with HIV who are Justice-Involved” is the next in the HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau’s Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) Integrating HIV Innovative Practices (IHIP) Webinar Series.
