Securing the Link

The time after incarceration is one of increased vulnerability and formerly incarcerated people may be particularly susceptible to drug overdose, suicide, or re-arrest. Without linkage interventions, barriers to care that existed prior to entering a correctional facility remain. A successful re-entry linkage-to-care intervention can provide the "link" between the correctional facility and community medical care, and other services, thereby maintaining or improving clinical health status, such as non-detectible viral load. When successful, these interventions can decrease HIV transmission, reduce recidivism, improve quality of life for individuals and, ultimately, for communities.
  
Highlighting the work of ActionAIDS (now known as Action Wellness), this guide offers considerations and step-by-step program procedures for organizations looking to develop a linkage-to-care program with individuals transitioning out of correctional facilities and back into local communities.
