HIV Navigation Services (HNS) Training Pre-Course Module introduces the concept of HIV Navigation Services. HIV navigation is a process of services delivery to help a person obtain timely, essential and appropriate HIV-related medical and social services to optimize their health and prevent HIV transmission. Navigation includes linking persons to health care systems, assisting with health insurance and transportation, identifying and reducing barriers to care and tailoring health education to the client to influence their health-related attitudes and behaviors. Peer and paraprofessional navigation, ART initiation and adherence, education and counseling, outreach and case management approaches are recommended in guidelines on entry and retention in HIV care by the International Association of Providers in AIDS Care (2012).
