Considerations for select transitions of care for people with HIV: adolescent to adult, prison to society and the postpartum period

Article Page

Abstract

Proper transitions of care for people with HIV (PWH) are necessary to ensure continuity of care, medication adherence and maintenance of successful clinical outcomes. Three transitions of care may lead to suboptimal outcomes if PWH are not correctly engaged: adolescent to adult, prison to society and the postpartum period. The management of these care transitions is a vital part of engagement in treatment. Evidence highlighting the gaps in care transitions provides a potential framework to optimize outcomes for PWH.

Keywords: adolescent, HIV, people with HIV, postpartum, prison, transitions of care.
