This webinar takes an in-depth look at an innovative intervention implemented by New York City Health + Hospitals Correctional Health Services to expand HIV workforce capacity through the use of strategic community-based partnerships. Funded by the HRSA/HAB Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) Workforce Capacity Building initiative, this intervention trained housing and employment service specialists to implement linkage and retention services for people with HIV who are incarcerated and returning to the community after incarceration.
- Training staff from programs outside of the traditional public health service model to support clients with HIV
