Surveillance of HIV-related service barriers among Individuals with Early and Late HIV Diagnoses (SHIELD)
Surveillance of HIV-related service barriers among Individuals with Early and Late HIV Diagnoses (SHIELD) is a project looking to find gaps in HIV prevention and testing to help improve programs. Adults that receive positive HIV test results during the last 12 months will be contacted by the health department if they are considered stage 0 (early) or stage 3 (late). They will be asked to complete a 50-minute survey which they can take online or over the phone. This survey can be used to improve access to HIV testing and prevention activities, including early access to pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). The project is a partnership with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
