Toolkit: Trauma-Informed Approaches to HIV Care

The National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD) is pleased to announce the release of the Trauma-Informed Approaches Toolkit. This toolkit was developed to assist health departments, specifically Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Part B and AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAPs), AIDS services organizations, and HIV clinics to take action to become trauma-informed. This toolkit covers the basics of trauma, provides an overview of the impact of trauma in people living with HIV (PLWH), describes trauma-informed approaches and strategies, and provides practical steps for RWHAP Part recipients, HIV providers, and organizations to develop and operationalize a plan for delivering trauma-informed prevention and care services to PLWH.
