NY Links focuses on improving linkage to care and retention in care and supports the delivery of routine, timely, and effective care for Persons living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in New York State. We also bridge systemic gaps between HIV related services in order to achieve better outcomes for PLWHA through improving systems for monitoring, recording, and accessing information about HIV care in NYS. We use a regional approach, utilizing the learning collaborative model, to fortify the links holding together communities of practice, and the links grounding them in the communities of consumers they serve.
New York Links was created through a HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB)-sponsored Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS). Since September of 2015 it is under the Governor’s Ending the Epidemic Initiative through the NYSDOH AIDS Institute.
