Creating an Inclusive Space

One of the key strategies for providing successful HIV treatment is engaging and retaining individuals in care. Creating a culture that recognizes the diversity of persons living and aging with HIV and fostering an environment that is welcoming and safe is a key element in retaining individuals in care. Additionally, making sure that services are accessible for older adults who may be challenged with mobility or other sensory impairments is another element in creating an inclusive space.

This series of modules will highlight considerations for primary care providers, long-term care facilities, and acute care hospitals for creating an inclusive space.

  • Describe the significance of creating an inclusive space on retention and engagement in care for persons with HIV
