Defining & Working with Hard-to-Reach Populations: Innovation & Game Changing Ideas


These slides were used for generating discussion and recommendations for next steps in meeting the United States National HIV/AIDS Strategy 2020 goals as well as the World Health Organization 90-90-90 global goals for identifying and treating persons living with HIV. "Hard-to-reach" populations, in the United States as well as globally, were reframed as not being "hard-to-reach" but rather hard to engage due to social and organizational infrastructures and historical trauma that make engagement for persons in these identified populations more difficult in many health care systems. This forum took place among AETC Program, SPNS, and PEPFAR grantees at the 2016 National Ryan White Conference on HIV Care & Treatment.
