2 Agenda1. Legislation 2. Background 3. What’s New for EIIHA?
3 Part A Legislation Part A Grant “…shall determine size and demographics of the estimated population of individuals with HIV/AIDS who are unaware of their HIV status”“determine the needs of…individuals with HIV/AIDS who do not know their HIV status”“develop a comprehensive plan…that includes – ““a strategy, coordinated as appropriate with other community strategies and efforts, including discrete goals, a timetable, and appropriate funding, for identifying individuals with HIV/AIDS who do not know their HIV status, making such individuals aware of such status, and enabling such individuals to use the health and support services”
5 What is EIIHA?Early Identification of Individuals with HIV/AIDS (EIIHA):Identifying, counseling, testing, informing, and referring of diagnosed and undiagnosed individuals to appropriate services, as well as linking newly diagnosed HIV positive individuals to care.
6 Definitions Unaware of HIV Status: Any individual who has NOT been tested for HIV in the past 12-months, any individual who has NOT been informed of their HIV result (HIV positive or HIV negative), and any HIV positive individual who has NOT been informed of their confirmatory HIV result.
7 Definitions Identification of Individuals Unaware of Their HIV Status: The categorical breakdown of the overall unaware population into subgroups, which allow for the overall EIIHA strategy to be customized based on the needs of each subgroup, for the purposes of identifying, counseling, testing, informing, referring, and linking these individuals into care.
8 Definitions Informing individuals of their HIV status: Informing an HIV negative individual, post-test, of their appropriate HIV screening resultInforming an HIV positive individual, post-test, of their confirmatory HIV result
9 Definitions Referral to care/services: The provision of timely, appropriate, and pre-established guidance to an individual that is designed to refer him/her to a specific care/service provider for the purpose of accessing care/services after the individual has been informed of their HIV status (positive or negative).
10 Definitions Linkage to care: The post-referral verification that care/services were accessed by an HIV positive individual being referred into care.Example: Confirmation first scheduled care appointment occurred.
11 Planning Council Duties Grantee Duties Determines size and demographics of estimated HIV+ unaware populationDetermines the needs of the HIV+ unaware populationDevelops a plan for organization and delivery of health and support services to HIV+ unaware populationDevelopment and Implementation of EIIHA StrategyDevelopment and Implementation of EIIHA Plan to Identify, Inform, Refer, and Link Unaware Population to CareReport Outcomes and Data associated with EIIHA Strategy and Plan
12 EIIHA vs. Unmet Need Definition Comparison Unmet Need Definition: HIV+ individuals who are AWARE of their HIV status but not in primary medical careEIIHA Definition: HIV+ individuals who are UNAWARE of their HIV status, and, therefore, not in primary medical care
