The Rural Health Information Hub recently released a new toolkit. The Rural HIV/AIDS Prevention and Treatment Toolkit, developed by the NORC Walsh Center for Rural Health Analysis, provides information, strategies, and resources to help rural communities implement HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment programs. Browse program models and examples that span the HIV/AIDS care continuum. Learn how to implement, evaluate, and sustain a program in your community and disseminate program results.
The RHIhub has also added Frontier and Remote (FAR) Codes to its Am I Rural? tool, allowing users to determine if a given location qualifies as Frontier and Remote, meaning that it is characterized by low population size and geographic remoteness.
Additionally, annual updates have been completed on two of the RHIhub’s Topic Guides:
- Rural Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Trauma – this guide is maintained by Dorothea Nelson. Thanks goes to Diane Calmus, National Rural Health Association; Kevin McGinnis, National Association of State EMS Officials; and Gary Wingrove, Mayo Clinic Medical Transport for serving as reviewers.
- Education and Training of the Rural Healthcare Workforce – this guide is maintained by Dorothea Nelson. Thanks goes to Mark Deutchmann of the Colorado AHEC for reviewing the guide.
