Outreach services are programs that principally identify people with unknown HIV disease or those who know their status so that they may become aware of, and may be enrolled in care and treatment services, not HIV counseling and testing or HIV prevention education.

In 2000, HIV Health Services began to develop a Quality Management Program for HIV/AIDS services in San Francisco. As part of this program, HIV Health Services and the HIV Health Services Planning Council (CARE Council) identified a need for service delivery standards in San Francisco.

These services may target high-risk communities or individuals. Outreach programs are planned and delivered in coordination with local HIV prevention outreach programs to avoid duplication of effort and are targeted to populations known through local epidemiologic data to be at disproportionate risk for HIV infection.

All of the existing HHS standards of care were reviewed and evaluated by the HIV Health Services Planning Council over FY-2014-15, finalized in May of 2015, without any revisions required.
