The Role of Community Health Workers to Support Linkage to and Retention in HIV Care

Archived webinar (July 2018). This webinar discussed how community-based organizations can benefit from incorporating Community Health Workers (CHWs) into their staffing models to improve linkage to care and services, as well as identification of resources and best practices. The webinar highlighted how CHWs may be used to provide culturally and linguistically appropriate services to help clients negotiate the health care system and improve linkage to and retention in HIV care. Lastly, a case study helped participants learn how CHWs may also help clients address other pressing social and economic needs that make accessing health care a lower priority.
