Here we share the lessons learned as PEER Center and Peer Education and Training Sites staff helped organizations integrate peer services to support clients living with HIV. The intent is to share ideas and approaches so program planners, policy makers, evaluators, consumer advisory boards, funders and organizations can integrate HIV-positive peers into HIV care and treatment within their communities. Four case studies describe the PETS/REC Initiative’s efforts to integrate peers into the care and treatment teams within specific organizations and communities.
