“Status-neutral” is an evolution and expansion of how HIV service agencies currently implement the HIV care continuum. Status-neutral encompasses the delivery of HIV prevention and care services while addressing the myriad social and health needs of patients regardless of their HIV status. “Status-neutral” embodies the new National HIV/AIDS Strategy’s call for the acceleration of the HIV response by embedding HIV prevention and care into routine care to advance health equity.
This webinar reviews the concept of status-neutral and provide examples of real-world applications from jurisdiction peers and leaders. Examples include addressing social determinants of health as part of HIV service delivery; normalizing conversations about sexual health; and addressing stigma by adopting status neutral in communications about services.
