Linking to Care

Linkage services are critical to helping people living with HIV find and stay in care. For newly diagnosed people, rapid (same day) linkage is becoming a standard. Patients undergoing life transitions (moving, loss of insurance, release from jail or prison) need linkage services that are sensitive to their situations.
