2 Goals for the National HIV/AIDS Strategy 1.Reduce new HIV infections 2.Increase access to care and improve health outcomes for people living with HIV 3.Reduce HIV-related health disparities

3 1. Reduce new HIV infections Lower the annual number of new infections by 25% Reduce HIV transmission by 30% Increase the percentage of people living with HIV who know their sero-status from 79% to 90% 2. Increase access to care and improve health outcomes for people living with HIV Increase the proportion of newly diagnosed patients linked to clinical care from 65% to 85% Increase the proportion of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program clients who are in continuous care from 73% to 80% Increase the number of Ryan White clients with permanent housing from 82% to 86% 3. Reduce HIV-related health disparities Improve access to prevention and care services for all Americans Increase the proportion of HIV-diagnosed gay and bisexual men with undetectable viral load by 20% Increase the proportion of HIV-diagnosed Blacks with undetectable viral load by 20% Increase the proportion of HIV-diagnosed Latinos with undetectable viral load by 20%

9 2014 – 2015 Texas Priorities The 27 priorities were developed from several meetings / consultations over the last couple of years. Discussions were had about the priorities in planners’ network meetings, with Part A administrators, with internal DSHS staff and with community members. The current list has been revised based on feedback from the first release of the Texas HIV Plan and on review of the Part A plans from across the state. We then looked at the Part A plans goals/objectives and implementation strategies. We reviewed all of the Part A plans and mapped the goals/objectives to the state plan. In order to make the document readable we had to take the various goals from each plan and generalize them into broader statements.

10 Domain I: Increasing HIV awareness among members of the general public, community leaders, and policy makers ○ Assure availability of key information for consumers, providers and policy makers Re-energize HIV awareness efforts through implementation of a media plan specifying priority stakeholders and messages. Who: DSHS, NCT, Houston; Timeline: Plans completed by March 31, Plans implemented April – December ○ Draw attention to the role of social determinants in the spread of HIV Incorporate a focus on social determinants to community mobilization and HIV care systems. Who: DSHS and local leaders of mobilization efforts and NCT providers; Timeline: Actions taken in 2013 and 2014.

11 Domain I: Increasing HIV awareness among members of the general public, community leaders, and policy makers o Form broad community alliances of traditional and non- traditional stakeholders to support the HIV mission Facilitate delivery of technical assistance and training for local health departments, community based providers, FQHCs and Medicaid providers to prepare for health care system changes and to increase the capacity of non-traditional providers to serve HIV infected persons. Who: DSHS, NCT and Houston; Timeline: Actions taken in 2013 and 2014.

12 Domain II: Increasing access to HIV prevention efforts for high risk groups ○ Focus prevention programs on those most at risk as determined by epidemiology ○ Address the environment and system issues that intensify HIV in vulnerable populations Actively train providers and partners in the role of social determinants of health. Who: DSHS, NCT; Timeline: Ongoing in 2013 and ○ Increase knowledge and sense of urgency to act in high risk populations Develop targeted media strategies focused on vulnerable population to increase HIV awareness and testing.

13 Domain III: Full diagnosis of all HIV infections ○ Evaluate effectiveness of HIV testing programs at the population and program level ○ Effectively identify and test individuals in populations at highest risk ○ Ensure that social and sexual networks of HIV infected persons are offered testing and counseling Expand the number of partners and members of social and sexual networks of HIV-infected persons who receive partner services (e.g. identification, notification, counseling and testing, linkage to care for partners and members of social and sexual networks) Who: DSHS, Houston, NCT; Timeline: Ongoing through 2013 and 2014.

14 Domain III: Full diagnosis of all HIV infections o Expand adoption of routine HIV testing as a part of medical care ○ Address stigma that prevents providers from offering testing and people form seeking or accepting testing ○ Adopt testing technologies that simplify testing, increase access or acceptability, or increase early diagnosis ○ Build social norms in high risk populations to seek health care

15 Domain IV: Speedy and timely linkage to HIV related care and treatment ○ Assure linkage systems that are client centered and responsive to circumstances and needs ○ Create approaches to locate and link HIV infected individuals who know their status but are not in care Establish a uniform definition for “lost to care” clients to allow more standardized assessment of the scope of the issue, inform standards of care, and facilitate evaluation of efforts to return persons to HIV care. Who: Houston, Austin, NCT, DSHS Timeline: March31, Develop protocols for using surveillance data to identify persons out of care, and local activities to locate and return them to care.
