  • Description:
    This guidance is offered to assist state and local health department human immunodefi- ciency virus (HIV) prevention cooperative agreement grantees and directly funded community-based organization (CBO) grantees in planning, implementing, and evaluating HIV prevention case management (PCM). The Cen- ters for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides funding for individual-level, health education and risk-reduction activities, which include PCM. Previous guidelines for PCM are published in Guidelines for Health Education and Risk-Reduction Activities, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, April 1995. This revised guidance supersedes the 1995 PCM guidelines by further detailing essential compo- nents and protocols for PCM programs. HIV PCM is a client-centered prevention activ- ity, which assists HIV seropositive and seronegative persons in adopting risk-reduction behaviors. PCM is intended for persons having or likely to have difficulty initiating or sustaining practices that reduce or prevent HIV transmission and acquisition. PCM provides intensive one-on-one prevention counseling and support. In addition, PCM provides assistance in accessing needed medical, psychological, and social services that affect clients’ health and ability to change HIV -related risk-taking behavior.
