Creating a Jail Linkage Program: Training Manual

Author(s): IHIPHRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB)

Lessons learned from the SPNS Enhancing Linkages to HIV Primary Care & Services in Jail Settings Initiative. Learning objectives are to:

  • illustrate the effectiveness of jail linkage work
  • provide information on components of a jail linkage program
  • highlight best practices from successful EnhanceLink 
grantees so that readers have the necessary information to replicate and implement this work
  • support the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS) by maximizing available resources to reduce HIV incidence, increase access to care, optimize health outcomes, and reduce HIV-related 
health disparities 


The target audience includes health care provider sites and community partners with an interest and need to work with incarcerated populations, particularly HIV-positive jail inmates and the recently released.
