Overcoming Barriers to Care for HIV in Corrections

This presentation will guide correctional health professionals in the implementation of testing, treatment and linkage programs in corrections despite limited budgets and sparse resources. Participants will also explore ways to sustain these ongoing efforts to promote inmate, as well as community health.
