3310.0 Community-Based HIV Care

Monday, October 27, 2008: 2:30 PM
The growing medicalization of HIV case management and other support services has challenged community based providers. This session looks at the responses of the programs in relation to specialized HIV services, treatment adherence, care coordination and follow-up, and prenatal services. Data was collected through web surveys, environmental assessments, and secondary data analysis. Results were used to develop curricula for HIV case managers, to establish new service programs and to promote new policies. Participants in this session will understand the turn HIV policy has taken, where the increase in HIV infection is occurring, responsive strategies and how to apply the these assessment and intervention tools to their own organization or specialization.
Session Objectives: Describe current trends in new HIV infections and HIV program policy in the US Understand the core challenges of treating HIV in the high prevalence environment of under-served communities Identify the strengths of CHC based HIV programs, both for prevention and treatment Identify similar public health issues or programs where strategies described may be applicable to develop intervention or messages
