“Status-neutral” is an evolution and expansion of how HIV service agencies currently implement the HIV care continuum. Status-neutral encompasses the delivery of HIV prevention and care services while addressing the myriad social and health needs of patients regardless of their HIV status. “Status-neutral” embodies the new National HIV/AIDS Strategy’s call for the acceleration of the HIV response by embedding HIV prevention and care into routine care to advance health equity.
This webinar will review the concept of status-neutral and provide examples of real-world applications from jurisdiction peers and leaders. Examples include addressing social determinants of health as part of HIV service delivery; normalizing conversations about sexual health; and addressing stigma by adopting status neutral in communications about services.
Join us to learn what the status neutral approach can mean for ending the epidemic in your jurisdiction.
