Transitional Planning

Transitional planning is a multi-step service that helps to ensure a continuum of services for HIV-infected pre-release inmates who have disclosed their HIV status within the correctional facility. Transitional planning addresses care, prevention and support services needs of inmates to ensure a coordinated transition from incarceration to community. It facilitates access to interventions that will address the prevention needs of persons who are HIV-infected. Post-release follow-up is required to determine health and human service outcomes and, if necessary, reconnect to care and prevention services.
