Transitional planning is a multi-step service that helps to ensure a continuum of services for HIV-infected pre-release incarcerated individuals who have disclosed their HIV status within the correctional facility. Transitional planning addresses care, prevention and support services needs of incarcerated individuals to ensure a coordinated transition from incarceration to community. Appropriate referral agency listings and linkage agreements must be maintained and updated annually. It facilitates access to interventions that will address the prevention needs of persons who are HIV-infected. Post-release follow-up is required to determine health and human service outcomes and, if necessary, reconnect to care and prevention services. Forms used for Transitional Planning can be found in Appendix A of the attached documents.
