Let’s aim for true HIV prevention/care integration at the client level (DIS/Case Mgr) 2007 Ryan White funding increase = more staff to focus on multi-level linkages to care Pilots underway, working out the details Ultimate Goal: No more “prevention” staff and “care” staff, just HIV/STD/Hep staff

So, get to the point Brad! What prompted integration? Putting a crazy, big-mouthed, competitive idea guy who never sleeps in charge of programs and letting him out of the office! Having staff that truly care, dedicated to excellence. Focus is on constantly improving for the clients. Perceptions = Cautiously excited; HIV prevention folks particularly protective, but have built trust. Internal barriers = Staff time/drive, focus, energy, process/task oriented, early fear that HIV Care would take over everything. Barriers CDC could have removed = ??? Wins? Getting to come here today!

Advice for Others? Learn from others – the little guys have to be creative! Find and empower your visionary. Dedicate the resources (staff, time, money) to make it happen. Find the right people to be the cheerleaders and to make it happen! (It won’t happen if someone isn’t pushing it along and supported from the top!) Engage the right people in the process up front (and get buy-in). Start with small wins where you can get them and build from there. Keep the focus on the client. Celebrate your successes!

Advice for CDC? Learn from others – the little guys have to be creative! Find and empower your visionary. Dedicate the resources (staff, time, money) to make it happen. (Both at CDC and for the states.) Find the right people to be the cheerleaders and to make it happen! (It won’t happen if someone isn’t pushing it along and supported from the top!) Engage the right people in the process up front and get buy-in. (This meeting is a very good start!) Start with small wins where you can get them and build from there. Keep the focus on the client. Celebrate your successes!
