Kaiser Permanente has reduced health care disparities for its HIV-infected population and they are sharing these best practices with others in the HIV Challenge. Private health care providers and public and community health clinics can increase the number of HIV-infected people getting effective treatment and learn from the Kaiser Permanente toolkit of clinical best practices, tools, mentoring, training and health IT expertise. To learn more, please visit kp.org/hivchallenge.
In advance of World AIDS Day, several Kaiser Permanente clinicians and leaders offered their thoughts about the organization's 30-year journey in caring for people with HIV. Several of them are uniquely positioned to comment because they have worked for Kaiser Permanente for close to 30 years and thus their careers have been intertwined with the global battle against HIV.
