Fact Sheet—SPNS Demonstration Model on Patient Navigation Intervention
HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB)
Fact sheet on an evidence-informed innovative model of care focused on the linkage to care step of the HIV care continuum. It provides information on key components of the intervention and the capacity required by organizations/clinics to conduct this work.
The HIV care continuum refers to the fluid nature of HIV care delivery and client experiences. This framework has received attention as research has demonstrated the importance of moving clients along the HIV care continuum with the goals of being fully linked, engaged, retained, and virally suppressed. Therefore, finding programs that help clients move along the stages of the continuum, as the one featured here, are particularly important.
This intervention guide highlights the following:
- Background information about the need for the intervention
- Intervention objectives
- Key considerations for replication
- Resource for more information
This intervention was initially implemented in a Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program-funded site, so those recipients who may be seeing similar populations, and who are facing similar challenges, may also benefit.
