This webpage provides both a geographical (map-based) and an alphabetical directory of the HIV/AIDS service organizations (ASOs) throughout Michigan that currently receive project funding to provide quit tobacco services for PLWH in our state.
Resources to help people living with HIV (PLWH) quit using tobacco (useful for both PLWH and providers)
This document includes an extensive list of resources for assisting PLWH to quit tobacco, including videos that teach motivational interviewing techniques, Michigan Tobacco Quitline information, and PLWH testimonials.
The Michigan Tobacco Use Reduction in People Living with HIV Project held three virtual focus groups during July and August 2022 with people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) who use tobacco products, generating 17 responses from seven aids service organizations across the state. The qualitative data on tobacco use behavior gathered during the focus groups is being used to help inform best practices to increase quit attempts among PLWHA.
This slide show presentation prepared by the Tobacco Use Reduction in People Living with HIV Project data staff includes results and lessons learned from three surveys of project staff (conducted in 2015, 2017 and 2019), two surveys of clients (conducted in 2015 and 2017), and six client focus groups (all conducted in 2019).
