The goals of the meeting were to:

  1. Identify the core components of trauma-informed primary care for women living with HIV;
  2. Clarify the types of evidence-based tools and interventions to realize these core components;
  3. Explore research, advocacy, funding and communications strategies to facilitate the operationalization of trauma-informed primary care for HIV-positive women in the U.S.

The meeting was very successful with three forthcoming publications in a prominent national journal describing steps forward to implement this new model of care.
