Strategies for Effective NHAS Partnership with Community Based
HIV Prevention Leadership Summit | December 13, 2010 | Washington, D.C.
Getting on the same page…
• The majority of community-based organizations are on board
– Reflect standard operating procedure
– Want this initiative to succeed in the interest of current and future endeavors
• We got what we were asking for
– Eager to partner in formative process
• Not excited about having the future dictated to us
– 12-city initiative is exciting
• One-size-fits-all approaches have never worked
• Tailored strategies promise new progress
• CDC will establish new standards for reviewing State and local prevention
plans to ensure that Federal funds are used in a manner addressing people
living with HIV and reflecting populations with greatest need.
• Community and organizational understood goals:
Reduce and/or eliminate HIV incidence
Improve individual access to/engagement in high-quality medical care
Facilitate antiretroviral treatment access and adherence
Connect those in need with supportive services to optimize health outcomes
Eradicate HIV-related stigma and discrimination from our community
Three Key Opportunities
• Doing a better job of treating the whole person
• Resolving the funding stream dilemma
• Addressing the social drivers of HIV vulnerability
Treating the Whole Person Where They Are
CBO’s should embrace 12-city initiative
NHAS Objectives
• CDC will continue to evaluate all existing HIV prevention programs every
five years to ensure that Federal dollars support programs that are
effective and have demonstrated improved health outcomes.
• HHS OS and relevant agencies will consult with States and other
jurisdictions prior to allocating prevention funding to targeted populations
and communities to ensure coordination of efforts.
Partnership Opportunity
• Recalibrate program protocols to provide greater flexibility in funding
announcements/applications to design programs that meet the needs of
the client entering the door
• Maximize the potential of short-term opportunities such as PEP, PrEP,
and TLC+

Medical Home Model: Principles for Quality
Principles developed by the American College of Physicians
• Personal physician in physiciandirected practice
• Whole person orientation
• Coordinated care, integrated across
• Quality and safety emphasis
• Enhanced patient access to care
• Supported by payment structure
that recognizes services and value
Team-based care:

Care Coordinator
Office Staff
Health Educator
Behavioral Health
Case Manager
Social Worker
Available Doesn’t Mean Accessible
Recognize the strength of community-based organizations
Immediately arrest preventable transmission through combination prevention
approaches, inclusive of:
• Individual behavior interventions (condom access, HIV education, HIV testing)
• Biomedical prevention (PEP, PrEP, Microbicides, Vaccines)
• Systemic intervention (patient and peer navigation)
• Structural intervention (community outreach)
CBOs must be included and find ways to become part of the conversation
• Innovate new ways of partnership building on effective comprensive models
• Helping Our Men Evolve (HOME) - Black Men’s Initiative
• Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good
• Identify new way to embrace, rather than resist change to optimize shifts in the
• Prefer direct partnership over dictatorship
Revisit Strategic Partnerships
Community Health Clinics are Essential to our Success
• 18.8 million socioeconomically disenfranchised individuals with
limited or no access to health care visit CHCs each year
• Can only account for less than 800,000 HIV tests administered
– Partially explained by an infrastructure issue. Presents a strong prospect for
quality improvement.
• Paradigm shift: HIV is not someone else’s problem. It is not okay
for people to receive episodic health care without being offered an
HIV test.
– Current USPSTF guidelines embrace community health centers
– Routine testing is vital in areas where the HIV epidemic is generalized
• Case management should include focus on medical care and
treatment support
Funding Dilemma
End fragmentation of care - NHAS heralds opportunity for more
synergistic funding and administration
• CBOs have to treat the whole person and have to overcome challenges to meet program
deliverable while responding to the needs of the individual
• Competing needs are essential to retention in health care and treatment adherence
• AIDS Adult Day Health Care Centers are an excellent model for comprehensive care
under one reimbursement stream
• Fragmented care can result from varied interpretations in Medicaid licensing
• Health care
• Mental health
• Addiction and subtance use
Addressing Social Drivers of
HIV Vulnerability is Key
Public Service Announcement
Let this presentation serve as a clarion call for all providers,
including some of us in this room, to get real about and confront
our character and moral challenges that inhibit our ability to
provide the best standard of care to every individual that walks
through our doors. Every person deserves to be treated with full
respect and dignity irrespective of their socioeconomic
circumstances, incarceration history, sexual orientation,
substance use, disability, or mental health condition
Important Opportunity to Program More
DOL, SSA, DOJ, and HHS OS will develop a joint initiative to consider ways
to help individuals living with HIV access income supports, including job
skills and employment.
• Many social and structural issues inhibit the success of HIV prevention efforts and contribute to
ongoing HIV vulnerability among the most marginalized populations.
• Effective strategies to combat the following social drivers are urgently needed:
• homo-hatred
• racism
• addictophobia
• convictophobia
• xenophobia
• Economic inequalities and employability
• Driving a great deal of risk for her and him
• Occassional gifts and money can be tied to expectations of condomless sexual reciprocity
• Homelessness
• Housing is critical to prevention and health care
