Anti-Retroviral Treatment and Access to Medication (ARTAS) is an individual-level, multi-session, time-limited intervention with the goal of linking recently diagnosed persons with HIV to medical care soon after receiving their respective test result. ARTAS is based on the Strengths-based Case Management (SBCM) model, which is rooted in Social Cognitive Theory, particularly self-efficacy and Humanistic Psychology. SBCM is a model that encourages the client to identify and use personal strengths; create goals for himself/herself; and establish an effective, working relationship with the Linkage Coordinator (LC).

HIV Testing in Nonclinical Settings 
Contact the HAHSTA Training Coordinator for more information.

HIV Testing in Nonclinical Settings is CDC's latest HIV testing training for nonclinical settings. This training reflects scientific advances and evidence-informed updates as expressed in CDC's guidance: Implementing HIV Testing in Nonclinical Settings: A Guide For HIV Testing Providers (2016). Key influences on this curriculum have been shifts in HIV prevention, care, and treatment that have occurred since the Fundamentals of HIV Prevention Counseling training, and the policies that followed. This training has a streamlined Six-Step Protocol with greater emphasis on serostatus specific referrals and active linkage. A person's current circumstances are explored, with less extensive pre- and post-test counseling.

Sister-to-Sister: Take Control of Your Health (TCYH) Virtual Instructor-led Training
Contact the HAHSTA Training Coordinator for more information.

Sister to Sister: Take Control of Your Health is an adaptation of the 1993 original intervention, Sister to Sister: Respect Yourself! Protect Yourself! Because You Are Worth It! This new, blended course is designed for clinic-based providers to give women of color the tools they need to reduce their risk of HIV. Each training day is approximately five and half hours.

Social Network Strategy (SNS) for HIV Testing Recruitment
Contact the HAHSTA Training Coordinator for more information.

Social Network Strategy (SNS) is an evidence-supported approach to engage and motivate a person to accept HIV testing. This approach is based on the underlying principle that persons within the same social network who know, trust, and can exert influence on each other share similar HIV risk behaviors. SNS is particularly useful to recruit marginalized and/or hidden persons at risk for HIV.
