INTRODUCTION AND EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Implementation of healthcare reform, advancement of national public health strategies, and biomedical prevention developments are some of the fundamental ASOs/CBOs that provide clinical services
shifts impacting HIV non-profit organizations in the United States. Reduction and re-direction of HIV funding and increased focus on accountable care and health outcomes requires organizations to remain responsive and proactive.
HealthHIV conducted a first-of-its-kind national survey of nearly 500 AIDS Service Organizations and Community-Based Organizations (ASOs/CBOs) to evaluate the sustainability and availability of services, and the capacity and structure of the organizations providing them. The State of ASOs/CBOs in the US national s urvey assessed how ASOs/CBOs are responding to the healthcare landscape changes, particularly its impact on workforce development, service and program coordination, fiscal sustainability, strategic partnership development, leadership advancement, strategic planning, and integration and alignment of services. In conjunction with the survey, HealthHIV developed
of ASOs/CBOs have increased service offerings in the past three years
an online National ASO/CBO Directory 2017-18 to document the availability and breadth of HIV services available to healthcare consumers. The Directory is searchable for consumers and serves as a catalogue for organizations to initiate partnerships and streamline service delivery in their jurisdictions.
Findings from the survey provided a contextual perspective on the challenges that ASOs and CBOs face in responding to environmental, political, and economic changes in the healthcare landscape. Participation, content, and categories make it a unique analysis of the overall health of ASOs/CBOs, and a valuable tool for referencing and responding to collective challenges.
Among the key survey findings: • Most ASOs/CBOs are located in urban settings (70%), while only a small number (12%) are located in rural areas. • A majority (71%) of ASOs/CBOs have fewer than 50 staff members, and nearly half (47%) have 20 or fewer staff members. • Most ASOs/CBOs offer HIV testing (78%). Only half of ASOs/CBOs (50%) reported that HIV testing is routine for all clients between the ages of 13 and 62 and less than half (40%) are utilizing CDC-recommended 4th generation lab-based tests. • Some ASOs/CBOs offer some clinical services to their clients, including PrEP (49%), HIV care and treatment (44%), primary medical care (33%), and nPEP (32%). • Over three quarters of ASOs/CBOs (76%) have increased service offerings over the past three years in response to client needs and opportunities to diversify funding. The most commonly cited barrier to expanding services is a lack of financial resources (47%). • Nearly 30% of ASOs/CBOs surveyed indicated most or all funding comes from local and federal government sources. About one in eight (12%) ASOs/CBOs rely on a single source of funding to maintain their HIV programs, and 12% also reported being very concerned about meeting budget goals this year.

While many ASOs/CBOs are evolving services to remain relevant, others are in need of resources and guidance to make necessary transitions and ensure sustainability.
METHODOLOGY HealthHIV developed the survey instrument based on findings from its ASO/CBO capacity building programs and input from ASO/CBO leaders. The questions were developed to define ASO/CBO leadership characteristics, identify fiscal and HIV service capacity of ASOs/CBOs, and gather information on current training needs. The survey instrument consisted of 64 questions (49 qualitative, 15 quantitative) and was distributed nationally online via SurveyMonkeyTM. HealthHIV and its partner for distribution, the Test Positive Aware Network (TPAN), recruited respondents through open invitations using targeted email lists, newsletters, and website postings. Data were collected from August to December 2017. Survey participants were gathered through convenience sampling, and the only offered incentive was for participating organizations to be included in HealthHIVâ€™s online National ASO/CBO Directory 2017-18.

IMPLICATIONS Data from HealthHIV’s inaugural State of ASOs/CBOs in the U.S. survey suggests the following implications.
ASOs/CBOs need more support to build confidence and capacity in responding to the dynamic healthcare landscape. ASOs/CBOs view their current state as uncertain and challenging. Among the top six most common responses from ASOs/CBOs on the state of ASOs/CBOs in the US, five words used indicated threatening circumstances for organizations: “challenging”, “uncertain”, “fragile”, “struggling”, or “unstable”. These responses may indicate apprehension and lack of confidence in the ability of ASOs/CBOs to adapt in a dynamic healthcare environment.
More ASOs/CBOs are needed in rural areas. Only a small number of ASOs/CBOs (12%) reported locations in rural areas. While the HIV epidemic is primarily urban, many parts of the country are experiencing a greater number of new diagnoses in rural or suburban areas. In the Deep South, 28% of new diagnoses are in rural and suburban areas. People living with and at risk for HIV in rural communities have limited access to health care providers with HIV experience, including those who provide HIV testing and/or PrEP. Rural communities often have higher levels of poverty and HIV-related stigma, are disproportionately affected by cuts to Medicaid, and have more uninsured and underinsured esidents per capita. For these reasons, safety-net providers such as ASOs/CBOs and health centers are essential to ensuring improved health outcomes along the HIV care continuum.
ASOs/CBOs must diversify funding to include non-governmental sources to ensure fiscal sustainability. ASOs/CBOs rely heavily on government funding. Nearly 30% of ASOs/CBOs surveyed indicated most or all funding comes from local and federal government sources. Some ASOs/CBOs (12%) rely on a single source of funding to maintain their HIV programs. This is a precarious situation to be in with some federal programs, such as the Ryan White HIV/ AIDS Program and the 340B pharmacy program, expecting major cuts and restrictions in the coming years.
ASOs/CBOs are expanding service offerings to clinical/medical services. While fewer than one-half (44%) of ASOs/CBOs offer some type of medical services, this is an area that many would like to expand into. Notably, 44% of ASOs/CBOs offer HIV care and treatment, and one-third offer primary medical care. This growth is essential to ensure that culturally relevant HIV care and primary care remains accessible in community-based settings. Expansion to clinical services also indicates ASO/CBO response to biomedical advances, insurance availability, and care and treatment standards. ASOs/CBOs reported expansion in the following clinical services: PrEP, mental health, primary care, and chronic disease care.
Lack of financial resources is the leading factor limiting ASO/CBO capacity to expand services, adequately train staff, and evaluate performance. ASOs/CBOs are expanding to provide new services, however, many experience significant barriers to expansion, including lack of financial resources (47%), sustainability of planned services (26%), and competition with other entities (21%). Other barriers listed were workforce capacity, technology/ infrastructure limitations, and stigma. As financial resources are unlikely to increase significantly, ASOs/CBOs need to explore integrated approaches and expanded partnerships to ensure client access to primary care, HIV care, and mental health services.
More ASOs/CBOs should be providing insurance navigation services. While threats to the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program and ACA repeal efforts persist, it is more important than ever to connect individuals to public and private insurance to ensure access to HIV and primary care services. Only half (52%) of ASOs/CBOs provide insurance navigation. The number of people living with HIV who are eligible for insurance has increased, largely due to Medicaid expansion, and in many cases the ASOs/CBOs are the primary service provider for uninsured individuals.
ASOs/CBOs may need more education on clinical guidelines and standards of care. Despite 44% of ASOs/CBOs indicating they offer PrEP in-house, more than half (60%) do not provide extragenital STI screening/ testing. Responses also indicate that ASOs/CBOs are not adhering to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention HIV testing recommendations. While most (78%) ASOs/CBOs provide HIV testing, only half reported that HIV testing is routine for all clients between the ages of 13 and 62.
ASOs/CBOs need more fiscal training and technical assistance to improve fiscal health and sustainability of their organization. Repeatedly, ASOs/CBOs report limited access to fiscal topics such as revenue diversification, performance-based payment models, establishing indirect rates, implementing client payment models, and unit cost calculation for services. Additionally, approximately 18-20% of ASO/ CBOs providing a billable service are not billing third-party payers. This indicates a significant opportunity for ASOs/CBOs to engage in TA to diversify resources through third-party billing.â€‹
