Early Identification of Individuals with HIV/AIDS (EIIHA) LCDR Keisha Johnson, Project Officer Gary Cook, Deputy Director, DMHAP Department of Health and Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration HIV/AIDS Bureau Division of Metropolitan HIV/AIDS Programs July 30, 2013
Agenda 1. Legislation 2. Background 3. What’s New for EIIHA?
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”
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.
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.
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.
Definitions Informing individuals of their HIV status: Informing an HIV negative individual, post-test, of their appropriate HIV screening result Informing an HIV positive individual, post-test, of their confirmatory HIV result
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). 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. Definitions
Planning Council Duties Grantee Duties Determines size and demographics of estimated HIV+ unaware population Determines the needs of the HIV+ unaware population Develops a plan for organization and delivery of health and support services to HIV+ unaware population Development and Implementation of EIIHA Strategy Development and Implementation of EIIHA Plan to Identify, Inform, Refer, and Link Unaware Population to Care Report Outcomes and Data associated with EIIHA Strategy and Plan
EIIHA vs. Unmet Need Definition Comparison Unmet Need Definition: HIV+ individuals who are AWARE of their HIV status but not in primary medical care EIIHA Definition: HIV+ individuals who are UNAWARE of their HIV status, and, therefore, not in primary medical care
Unmet Need vs. EIIHA Unmet Need Aware of HIV status Formula Driven EIIHA Unaware of HIV Status Estimated (21%) Both need care
EIIHA Now EIIHA Components: 1.Strategy 2.Plan a)Identify, Inform, Refer, and Link b)Reflects subgroups in EIIHA Matrix 3. Data
What is New for EIIHA? FOAs for Parts A and B are streamlined 2 Parts to EIIHA- FY 2014 FOA Requirements and Progress Report (same as in past) FY 2014 FOA EIIHA Information Overall Assessment of EIIHA Plan and Approach Allow grantees to reflect on their EIIHA approach since its inception Summarize how the EIIHA Plan was developed and implemented Target Group selection Data collection, analysis usage
What is New for EIIHA? FY 2014 FOA EIIHA Information (cont.)
