Journal Article: A typology of models for expanding access to oral health care for PLWHA
An article entitled "A typology of models for expanding access to oral health care for people living with HIV/AIDS" has been published in the Summer 2011 issue of Journal of Public Health Dentistry. It describes a typology of program models for expanding access to dental services for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA), based on the work of the ECHO HIV Oral Health Initiative 5-year multi-site evaluation. These programs serve communities with limited access and high unmet need for oral health care, such as rural areas, low-income, and racial/ethnic minorities. The typology can assist program planners and medical and dental care providers with service delivery strategies for addressing the unmet need for oral health care in their area.
