Building a Medical Home for Multiply Diagnosed HIV-positive Homeless Populations

Building a Medical Home for Multiply Diagnosed HIV-positive Homeless Populations

Description

The Medical Homes for Homeless Initiative is testing interventions to improve care engagement for HIV positive homeless and unstably housed people living with HIV and co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders. Interventions seeks to build sustainable linkages to mental health, substance abuse treatment and HIV/AIDS primary care services for this population.  In addition, demonstration sites will seek to provide access to housing resources and services for their target populations. This may be achieved through the co-location of services within an HIV primary care clinic; within a public housing facility that serves the target population or building a network of providers through the execution of memoranda of understanding or contracts.
