Medical-Legal Partnerships to Support Continuity of Care for Immigrants Impacted by HIV: Lessons Learned from California

The United States (US) has experienced a surge of anti-immigrant policies and rhetoric, raising concerns about the influence on health outcomes for immigrants living in the US.

In this brief report, we describe the value of medical-legal partnerships (MLPs) in addressing needs related to immigration and supporting continuity of health care. We also outline facilitators for building these partnerships between medical and legal services. Report available at:
