Strengthening Systems of Care: Supporting Individuals with HIV and OUD following Incarceration
Date and Time

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Summarize current policies that result in disproportionate incarceration of persons with HIV and OUD
- Explain the risks associated with re-entry for persons with HIV and OUD
- Identify at least three promising practices for supporting persons with HIV and OUD at a systems level following incarceration
