Integrated Planning 2.0 Webinar and Peer Learning Series: Taking it One Section at a Time
State and local jurisdictions across the country are working on their response to the Integrated HIV Prevention and Care Plan Guidance, including the Statewide Coordinated Statement of Need, CY 2022-2026. The IHAP TAC is here to help! In January 2022, we launched our webinar and peer learning series where we will review and discuss the guidance section by section and address priority areas and ongoing points for clarification identified by jurisdictions and planning stakeholders.
Webinars: During each webinar, we will dive into the section's requirements; discuss available resources and best practices related to its development, and invite recipients, planning bodies, federal partners, and other key stakeholders to share their perspectives and examples from the field. Each webinar will consider various jurisdictional contexts as they relate to integrated planning, including rates of HIV diagnosis, geography, and whether or not the jurisdiction is engaged in phase one of the Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) initiative.
Peer Learning Sessions: To provide additional time for jurisdictions to connect, share, and discuss challenges and strategies with each other and members of the IHAP TAC team, we will facilitate peer learning sessions within two weeks of each webinar. The learning sessions will focus on key themes from the webinar and be tailored to meet the needs of jurisdictions approaching integrated planning from different circumstances and perspectives.

Incorporating Hepatitis C in Integrated HIV Prevention and Care Planning. Health Department Challenges and Lessons Learned in Aligning Resources, Strategies, and Services to End the Epidemics
Wednesday, January 29, 2020
In recent years, the implementation of health care reform and scientific advances in infectious disease treatment has transformed patient access to prevention and cure therapy. To further these opportunities health departments are integrating infectious disease services. Included are hepatitis C virus (HCV)—into HIV prevention and care planning. This was done to better address community needs, leverage resources, improve efficiencies, and enhance coordination of service delivery.
Many health departments included HCV prevention and care services in their Integrated HIV Prevention and Care Plans, and are in the process of implementing, monitoring, and evaluating HCV services as part of their plans. The inclusion of HCV services and programs can require significant structural changes and funding re-alignment. This webinar, hosted by the Integrated HIV/AIDS Planning Technical Assistance Center, focused on the challenges and promising practices on leveraging HIV prevention and care programs to include HCV services within health departments. The webinar featured guest presenters who detailed their jurisdictions’ efforts to integrate HCV into its HIV prevention and care services, including resources needed, community level training and tracking HCV related data.
January 28, 2020
Resource allocation is an essential step in planning the optimal use of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) funds by assigning awarded RWHAP resources to prioritized service categories. Resource allocation is informed by identifying and prioritizing unmet needs, and selecting service categories that can best meet those priorities. Through resource allocation, RWHAP funds are assigned to priority services. This is done to best meet local HIV care and treatment needs. The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program mandates that Part A and Part B recipients conduct a priority setting and resource allocation process. Which should incorporate a wide range of representatives and stakeholders. Including those who reflect the epidemic in their jurisdiction. During this webinar, presenters from the Integrated HIV/AIDS Planning Technical Assistance Center described key definitions and requirements for resource allocation, and effective resource allocation processes including tips, strategies, and resources. Representatives from the Philadelphia Office of HIV Planning and the Virginia Department of Health presented their strategies for optimizing resource allocation approaches in their jurisdictions.

Historically, prevention and care programs have operated separate planning groups, responsible for overseeing the planning and implementation of HIV activities within communities. Part A and Part B recipients, and CDC-funded prevention jurisdictions, have conducted parallel planning activities. This often occurred with little collaboration or coordination. However, there has been a recent shift towards integrating planning body activities. In an effort to reduce duplication and streamline the work of planning groups. The benefits of integrating planning activities are myriad. But there can be barriers to successful collaboration, including financial responsibility for administrative support. Such as voting responsibilities and parity; and culture differences between prevention and care planning bodies.
This webinar, hosted by the Integrated HIV/AIDS Planning Technical Assistance Center (IHAP TAC), focused on integrated planning activities. Attendees learned about various models of collaboration or integration that jurisdictions can pursue as well as the benefits and potential challenges associated with integrated planning activities. The webinar featured guest presenters from Memphis, TN and San Francisco, CA who detailed their jurisdictions' efforts to integrate planning activities of prevention and care, and discussed lessons learned and promising practices.
April 10, 2019
This webinar was hosted by the Integrated HIV/AIDS Planning Technical Assistance Center (IHAP TAC). Presenters were from the Rhode Island Centers for Excellence Integrating HIV Care, Support, and Treatment (CoExist) project. Their presentation demonstrated how they are working to build and sustain their HIV workforce. They highlighted their work with public institutions of higher education, particularly Rhode Island College. Presenters described the process with emphasis on HIV workforce development, and creation of multidisciplinary, intensive care management teams.
