About this Toolkit
The Rural HIV/AIDS Prevention and Treatment Toolkit was first published on
1/11/2017 and last reviewed on 4/8/2022.
Toolkits are developed based on a review of FORHP grantees' applications, foundation-funded projects, and an
extensive literature review, to identify evidence-based and promising models. Programs featured in the toolkit
are interviewed to provide insights about their work and guidance for other rural communities interested in
undertaking a similar project.
This toolkit was produced by the NORC Walsh Center for Rural Health Analysis, in partnership with the University
of Minnesota's Rural Health Research Center, and in collaboration with the Rural Health Information Hub
Contributors from the NORC Walsh Center include Alycia Bayne, Kellie Schueler, Amy Rosenfeld, Sarah Hodge, Maria
