HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB)
This factsheet focuses on two interventions focused on women of color living with HIV: SPNS Demonstration Model on Women Empowered to Connect and Remain Engaged in Care (WE CARE) and Guide to Healing: Enhancing Access for HIV+ Women in the Rural South Intervention. The factsheet highlights two evidence-informed innovative models of care focused on the retention in care step of the 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—like the one featured here—are particularly important.
This factsheet highlights:
- 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 greatly.
