Welcome to NY Links
NY Links identifies innovative solutions for improving linkage to and retention in HIV care to support the delivery of routine, timely, and effective care for Persons living with HIV/AIDS in New York State. We will bridge systemic gaps between HIV related services and achieve better outcomes for PLWHA through improving systems for monitoring, recording, and accessing information about HIV care in NYS. Region by region, we will utilize the learning collaborative model to fortify the links holding together communities of practice, and the links grounding them in the communities of consumers they serve.
This effort is a supported by the HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB)-sponsored Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) and the NYSDOH AIDS Institute.
Dr. Bruce Agins leads a discussion at the January 23, 2013 Upper Manhattan Learning Session.
