Details:

  • Description:
    LINK LA (Linking Inmates to Care in Los Angeles) is a 12-session, 24-week peer-navigation intervention for people with HIV who are scheduled to be released from jail. LINK LA addresses individual factors by emphasizing the importance of retention in care and antiretroviral therapy (ART) adherence; behavioral factors related to HIV care and adherence by promoting self-efficacy, goal setting, and problem solving; and socialenvironmental factors by promoting social support and trusting relationships with peer navigators and clinicians. The intervention also teaches skills to overcome social stigma and discrimination, and facilitates access to care through appointment scheduling, reminders, transportation assistance, and meeting competing subsistence needs. Lay peer navigators are trained to act as role models to assist participants through each stage of the HIV continuum of care (e.g., linkage or re-engagement, retention, and antiretroviral adherence). Prior to the participants’ release from jail, peer navigators meet with participants in a private conference room for 1-2 hours to deliver intervention content. After release, navigators meet with participants in private community settings and provide counseling on retention and adherence behaviors while accompanying participants to 2 HIV care appointments up to 24 weeks after release.
