Interventions

Content related to interventions that are associated with improving linkage to care and retention in care for HIV+ individuals. Interventions fall into three categories--Those that have been tested and are considered evidence based, those that are in the process of being tested, and ideas that could become evidenced based practices but still need some work. Below are two tools that can help you when it comes time to select an intervention.  The first is a self-assessment which will inform you as to your organization’s readiness to implement an intervention and the second is an FAQ specific to the set of interventions designed by NYLinks.

ARTAS

An Evidence-Based Intervention to Improve Linkage

"Anti-Retroviral Treatment and Access to Services (ARTAS) is an individual-level, multi-session, time-limited intervention with the goal of linking recently diagnosed persons with HIV to medical care soon after receiving their positive test result. ARTAS is based on the Strengths-based Case Management (SBCM) model, which is rooted in Social Cognitive Theory (particularly self-efficacy) and Humanistic Psychology. SBCM is a model that encourages the client to identify and use personal strengths; create goals for himself/herself; and establish an effective, working relationship with the Linkage Coordinator (LC)."
