434 Advancing Health Equity: Improving Reentry for People with HCV and HIV*

Individuals released from incarceration face unique circumstances that make community engagement in HIV and/or HCV care and treatment challenging. To promote successful reentry, the New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute Office of Criminal Justice Services implemented the Corrections Health Initiative (CHI), which funds community-based organizations to implement prevention interventions and HIV/HCV navigation services within New York State correctional facilities.

Educational Objectives
  • Review the New York State Corrections Health Initiative model
  • Explain the importance of cross-sector collaborations to improve health equity and support reentry
  • Describe how the CHI initiative supports New York's implementation of Ending the Epidemic
