Enhancing Linkages to HIV Primary Care and Services
in Jail Settings

Report on Enhancing Linkages to HIV Primary Care in Jail Settings:
Our first task was to convene in October 2006 a consultation meeting of experts in the field of jail health and management to discuss and synthesize current trends and best practices in HIV counseling and testing in jails and linkages to services for recently released inmates. The proceedings of this meeting were summarized in a report to HRSA on potential interventions, research design and data elements.
