I am worried about how we are going to ensure that our most marginalized populations (LGB, trans, undocumented etc.) will be able to find treatment that is appropriate to meet their needs, now that CASC is ending.
I am worried about who is going to do an HIV risk assessment during the quick, field-based Initial Triage. CASC has been such a great opportunity to talk to people who aren't necessarily seeking out any services (especially if they are mandated by DPSS or other systems to a CASC assessment) and who would not otherwise have an opportunity to learn about things like PEP, PrEP, or how to get back into HIV care if they have been out of it for a while.
I have so many questions that remain unanswered.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
