This satellite meeting will focus on HIV in correctional settings and post-release linkage to care. The sponsors of the satellite are nationally recognized for their work in this area. The Center for AIDS Research Collaboration on HIV in Corrections supports multi-disciplinary interactions between investigators to enhance research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of HIV and associated conditions (including linkage to care after release) for incarcerated individuals. The EnhanceLink Project is a Special Project of National Significance initiative of HRSA which funded 10 grants to demonstration sites to design, implement, and evaluate innovative methods for linking persons living with HIV/AIDS in jail settings to primary medical care and ancillary services upon release. The Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS supports the conduct of interdisciplinary research focused on the prevention of HIV infection and the reduction of negative consequences of HIV disease in vulnerable and underserved populations nationally and abroad.
