More than 1.1 million individuals are estimated to be living with HIV in the United States, with an estimated 50,000 new infections occurring annually. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) will rapidly change health care delivery in the United States. Primary care settings will likely see the majority of the potentially 30 million people newly insured and seeking care, including the estimated 600k – 850k PLWH who are currently not in care and could be newly insured. Moreover, the HIV workforce is shrinking, while the demand for treatment is increasing. These factors drive the need to advance HIV care in primary care settings and achieve the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy to ensure access, quality, and equity.

Learning Objectives:

  • The session will review findings from a national survey of the state of HIV in primary care based on the impact of the PPACA on access to HIV care, including increasing caseloads of HIV-positive patients for all providers; barriers to HIV-positive patients accessing care; and training and education needs of HIV care providers.
  • Describe HIV and primary care workforce challenges considering PPACA amidst increasing numbers of HIV patients
  • The need to integrate HIV into primary care and next steps will be explained.
