On August 22 and 23, 2013, WHP convened a strategy meeting including 23 of the nation’s leading experts on trauma from academia, government, and advocacy organizations to strategize about implementing a new system of trauma informed primary care for US women living with HIV.
The goals of the meeting were to:
- Identify the core components of trauma-informed primary care for women living with HIV;
- Clarify the types of evidence-based tools and interventions to realize these core components;
- 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.
