The alignment of U=U, Treatment as Prevention, rapid HIV testing, and access to PrEP can serve as a paradigm shift for organizations that have previously focused energy on HIV diagnosis and treatment alone. We can transform ourselves from HIV treaters to HIV preventers by engaging and empowering priority populations under a broader umbrella of care. This session will discuss how we can open the umbrella to include primary and specialty care for people with substance use disorders, seeking hormone therapy for gender affirmation, seeking STI testing and/or PrEP. This paradigm allows for synergies between programs and augments funding streams.
The 340B program is a federal program established in 1992 that allows safety-net health care organizations serving vulnerable populations to buy outpatient prescription drugs at a discount. This session will demystify the complicated regulatory requirements of the 340B program while also offering strategies for organizational growth. During this session, participants will learn how to maximize the use of 340B program income and best practices for maintaining compliance within the program. Through the expansion of services and enhancement practices, organizations can see beneficial outcomes for the clients you serve, and build sustainable operational policies and procedures.
