A recent outbreak of HIV infection centered in the rural town of Austin in Scott County, Indiana, was associated with widespread injection drug use and a socio-economically depressed population. Control of the outbreak required coordinated efforts by state, federal, local, and academic institutions to implement and maintain on-site programs and services that included contact tracing, HIV and hepatitis C virus testing, insurance enrollment, syringe exchange, rehabilitation services, care coordination, preexposure prophylaxis, and HIV treatment. This article summarizes a presentation by Diane M. Janowicz, MD, at the IAS-USA continuing education program, Improving the Management of HIV Disease, held in Los Angeles, California, in April 2016.
