The Health Resources and Services Administration, HIV/AIDS Bureau’s Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) program provides funding and support to research projects around the country designed to investigate innovative ways to provide care and services to people living with and at risk for HIV/AIDS in underserved communities. SPNS enlisted Impact to create, disseminate, and promote tools and events that would help providers better replicate the best practices and research findings from the SPNS program’s many research initiatives. Impact created the Integrating HIV Innovative Practices (IHIP) project, which has helped hundreds of providers take tested SPNS innovation and turn it into practice.

The resources listed below, and available under Related Work, were all created to support the widespread implementation of best practices for innovative approaches to oral health care for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA):

  • Training Manual

  • Curriculum

  • Pocket Guide

  • Webinar 1: Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body - The Vital Role of Oral Health Care to Overall Wellbeing for PLWHA

  • Webinar 2: Dental Case Management
