          Through the Ryan White Program GRS has enhanced its HIV Navigation Services (HNS) non-medical case management (NMCM) services, which were first established in 2018. HNS is a short-term, multi-session intensive office-based intervention to help people living with HIV/AIDS to gain entry or reentry into HIV medical care.
          The program assists clients with a plan to achieve health literacy, create an action plan to identify their needs, and assist with navigating through the full range of HIV related services available across the HIV care continuum. GRS wlll then periodically follow-up with these clients as needed.
          Adult and young HIV positive men who have sex with men(particularly African American and Latinx) and high-risk heterosexuals. These populations have been identified by state and local HIV planning bodies as high priority. The 2018 Sacramento Region HIV/AIDS Needs Assessment noted NMCM was the second highest service demand, yet of the 82% of respondents that needed NMCM,29% did not receive it due to barriers. The proposed HNS proposal can assist clients overcome these barriers.
