Maricopa County: Expanding Jail Services & Improving Health for Incarcerated People with HIV

IHIP

The Maricopa County Jail Project was implemented by five jails and uses a nurse practitioner to manage service access and case management across the jail system. The intervention seeks to improve HIV care access for people experiencing incarceration by decreasing the wait time between incarceration and/or diagnosis, to the start of treatment; and supports clients in reaching viral suppression through pre-release planning, education, and linkage to community services upon release.

This package of training and implementation tools was developed to assist Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) sites and other organizations/clinics to implement the Maricopa County Jail Project intervention.

Implementation Guide

The Maricopa County Jail Project Implementation Guide includes:

  • Intervention steps at-a-glance to provide an overview of featured activities.
  • Resource checklists outlining necessary capacity for replication.
  • Staffing table with personnel overviews.
  • Narrative sections to walk readers through process for replication.

The intervention was initially implemented in a RWHAP-funded site, so those recipients who may be seeing similar populations, and who are facing similar challenges, may also benefit.
