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
