This webinar is about culturally appropriate engagement and service delivery with Latino populations with a transnational case study of Puerto Ricans. This webinar explains how to use four key frameworks which, when integrated, allow for the development of a provider-level strategy to improve the HIV primary care patient outcomes for Latinos/as who are incarcerated or have a history of incarceration. The case study provides a sub-analysis of transnationalism among Puerto Ricans.
