This panel presentation will begin with an overview of the HHS Viral Hepatitis Strategy, presented by the Office of Infectious Disease and HIV/AIDS Policy (OIDP) followed by one of the participating states in the Hepatitis C Medicaid Affinity Group (lead by OIDP), who will provide an example of how they have developed and implemented state-identified strategies to treat and cure an increased number and percentage of individuals diagnosed with hepatitis C virus (HCV). The RAND Corporation will then present preliminary multisite evaluation results from a three-year project executed by Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part A and B recipients. Yale University will close out the panel by presenting their HCV data to care project, with an emphasis on generating a statewide HCV treatment cascade for coinfected persons.
Have you ever wondered what resources are available to your agency around new business models for Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) community based organizations (CBO)? What leadership building opportunities are available for people living with HIV (PLWH) of color? Have you ever looked for a tool or TA resource to help enroll and engage PLWH in expanded health care coverage, or attempted to increase the health literacy of a RWHAP care and treatment provider for your clients? This workshop examines three projects funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), HIV/AIDS Bureau that offer training and TA opportunities for CBOs and the RWHAP community. The session will also highlight useful tools and materials currently available.
This presentation will begin with an overview of the Center for Quality Improvement and Innovation (CQII) introduction to the new cooperative agreement to provide training and technical assistance (T/TA) to Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) recipients and subrecipients to implement quality improvement methodologies. Presentation will include continued CQII offerings in T/TA such as quality academy, technical assistance calls, advanced training programs and quality award programs. In addition, CQII will discuss new offerings in T/TA such the quality collaborative and the quality improvement learning labs.
This session will highlight key activities and strategies that support deeper community engagement activities related to leadership development of people with HIV as community leaders and key staff at agencies (e.g., community health workers, peer navigators, etc.). HRSA will share key themes from listening sessions with the Ending the HIV Epidemic listening sessions, key technical assistance and evaluation projects to support community engagement at the individual, organizational, and jurisdictional levels.
