As public health professionals, disease intervention specialists (DIS) are key players in engaging their local communities for STD/HIV testing and treatment and other sexual health and support services. They play a particularly important role when connecting with communities experiencing homelessness since members of these communities often face multiple other challenges such as food insecurity, mental health issues, and illicit drug use. How are DIS across the country successfully reaching this population and linking them to services?
