Abstract

The National HIV AIDS Strategy (NHAS) calls for a more coordinated response to the HIV epidemic. The Global Engagement in Care Convening created a forum for domestic and international experts to identify best practices in HIV care. This manuscript summarizes the meeting discussions and recommendations from meeting notes and an audio recording of the meeting. Recommendations include: further standardization of performance goals and performance measures; additional research; a more robust system to support competing needs of clients receiving services; electronic information exchanges for HIV-related data; an expansion of the role of other health professionals to extend the capacity of physicians and other members of the care team; and revisions to current financing systems to increase reimbursement for and access to services that promote linkage to and retention in HIV care. The recommendations provide a unique example of “reverse technical assistance” and will inform U.S. program development, research, and policy.
