Outreach Employee Services

The goal of this outreach employee is to expand the existing outreach HIV testing efforts at BAO to include outreach testing in unconventional settings. BAO will use data from the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) to target populations and places that have high probability of reaching people living with HIV (PLWH) who have never been tested for HIV and are undiagnosed. These locations may include bars/clubs, community events, concerts, schools/universities, house parties, rehab facilities, and homeless shelters.  Outreach HIV testing will be conducted at times and in places where there is a high probability that PLWH will be identified. Plus, BAO will work in coordination with the state HIV prevention network to avoid duplication of services. Rapid HIV tests will be self-administered and the serology form including demographic information and risk assessment will be entered into the BAO Testing Database. Then a BAO peer navigator will guide newly diagnosed patients into care at the UAB 1917 Clinic, Magic City Wellness Center, or UAB Family Clinic. BAO will keep quantified records of individuals reached and refereed to testing as well as required reporting to ADPH of individuals found to be HIV positive and referred to medical care.

The second goal of this employee is to link individuals newly diagnosed with HIV into medical care and to re-engage individuals who have dropped out of care. There is already an established and streamlined system in place for linkage to care between BAO and the proximally located UAB 1917 Clinic, the Magic City Wellness Center, and the UAB Family Clinic. When an individual receives a reactive HIV test at BAO, a peer navigator escorts the individual to the clinic for confirmatory testing and to meet with a medical provider within 30 days. In order to make sure individuals with HIV are linked to care and receiving and adhering to HIV medication, the peer navigator will offer the CDC-recognized, evidence-based Anti-Retroviral Treatment and Access to Services (ARTAS) Intervention to newly diagnosed patients and previously diagnosed patients who have dropped out of care. The ARTAS intervention was developed for people living with HIV (PLWH) and comprises a brief, strengths-based, motivational interviewing case management approach.  This approach may also be used with PLWH who know their HIV status, but are not in medical care. 

BAO is an affirming and welcoming employer. People of color, women, people with disabilities, and people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, gender non-conforming, non-binary, or same gender loving are urged to apply. All interested candidates should email a resume and cover letter to resumes@birminghamaidsoutreach.org. Please do not phone with questions pertaining to this position, as calls may not be returned.
