dc.description.abstractIt has been almost 40 years since the first cases of HIV/AIDS were recorded in the late 1970s and early 1980s. In the US, political action and medical treatment has shifted HIV/AIDS from a deadly infection with no treatment, to a manageable and preventable disease. Yet, current infection rates reflect the continued challenge. This report is comprised of two sections. The first section, Social Determinants of Health Model and HIV/AIDS, provides a brief trajectory of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the US. The second section, Decentralizing Care, presents a process for how a medical service organization primarily devoted to HIV/AIDS services may decentralize care to other locations, with the intention to increase access to HIV/AIDS services and reducing stigma.
