Linking to Care

This is a brief assessment tool for counselors and testing staff to use with persons newly-diagnosed with HIV to assess their linkages to care in terms of health coverage, finances, housing, and social supports.  The questions are designed to guide staff in delivering consistent messages about HIV care and addressing immediate barriers to linkage to care.

The tool can be used as a form, discussion guide, or any other way that counseling, testing, and referrals professionals find helpful.

The tool was developed in partnership with the Points of Integration Workgroup, a joint venture of the Ryan White Part A Planning Council of the Philadelphia EMA and the Philadelphia HIV Prevention Planning Group.
