Overview

CCBH has been funded from the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) for fiscal year 2020 (2/01/20 – 12/31/20) in order to implement an HIV and STI prevention program for Region 3 which consists of Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, and Medina Counties.

HIV and STI prevention services will be provided to priority populations, which are determined by the HIV/STI epidemiology, along with CDC guidelines.

 

For HIV, priority populations will include men who have sex with men (MSM), Black Non-Hispanic and Hispanic/Latino MSM, and Youth (ages 13-24).

For syphilis, the priority populations will mirror that of HIV, with an additional focus on preventing congenital cases.

For chlamydia and gonorrhea, priority populations will include women of childbearing age, MSM, and youth & adolescents.

 

Specific services that will be provided with the grant funding will include:

  • HIV Counseling, Testing, and Referral (CTR) services with a goal of maintaining a one percent (1%) HIV positivity rate, at a minimum, throughout the grant year.
  • Comprehensive disease intervention activities to ensure newly diagnosed HIV and Syphilis clients will be linked to care within 45 days of diagnosis. These services will be provided by Communicable Disease Investigators (aka DIS) working with the Early Intervention Services component of the Ryan White Part A grant program.

 

Initiatives

Social marketing and community engagement efforts will be strategically implemented throughout Region 3 with the intent of reaching designated priority populations.

A Molecular Cluster Response Plan will be established in Region 3 to ensure that a strategic and effective response plan is in place in case of a molecular cluster outbreak within the region. With a coordinated plan, Region 3 will be able to contain potential HIV and STI outbreaks in an effort to prevent health risks to the community.

CCBH will identify community partners across the region to deliver HIV and STI prevention services.
