Webinar: engaging HIV-Positive Homeless Populations

June 13, 2018 2:00 PM (Eastern Time)

For many people living with HIV(PLWH), effective treatment begins with stable, secure, and adequate housing. Join us for an interactive webinar to learn how two successful programs are addressing homelessness and housing instability and behavioral health disorders, improving client engagement and retention in care, and observing improved rates of viral suppression. Presenters will share their experiences and provide practical knowledge gained from their work as HRSA/HAB Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) Building a Medical Home for Multiply Diagnosed HIV-positive Homeless Populations demonstration sites.

During the webinar, presenters will explore:

  • Why the medical home model is an especially effective approach for PLWH experiencing homelessness or housing instability and co-occurring mental health and/or substance use disorders and other co-morbidities
  • Organizational resources needed to implement these evidence-informed interventions
  • How to expand partnerships with providers to build a stronger care network for your HIV-positive clients

Presenters will share best practices, intervention replication tips, and participate in a Q&A session. This webinar is brought to you by the SPNS Integrating HIV Innovative Practices (IHIP) project. The interventions presented in this webinar are two of nine demonstration sites that were part of the Med-HEART project for which CISWH and Boston Health Care for the Homeless served as the evaluation and technical assistance center.
