Status neutral approaches use a “whole person” approach to care that meets the needs of the person or population, regardless of HIV status by integrating HIV care and prevention into routine care. While CDC and HRSA encourage status neutral approaches for HIV prevention and care programs across the country, there are many barriers that jurisdictions face with its implementation. Please join the Integrated HIV/AIDS Planning TA Center (IHAP TAC) on October 23, 2023 from 2-3 pm ET for a brief overview of the benefits and challenges of implementing a status neutral approach followed by a facilitated discussion with jurisdictions to hear about their experiences. Panelists from the Oregon Health Authority and the City of San Antonio, Metropolitan Health District will share what they are doing in their jurisdictions to implement status neutral approaches, including braiding funding, overcoming challenges, and lessons learned.
