Service Standards Workgroup

Service Standards Workgroup (SSW) reviews and provides feedback to Denver HIV Resources (DHR) on service standards, regularly, to ensure that they reflect the most current nationally recognized guidelines in HIV care and treatment, as well as local requirements. Service standards outline the elements and expectations that a RWHAP service provider follows when implementing a specific service category.

These standards ensure that all RWHAP service providers offer the same fundamental components of the given service category across a service area. Service standards must be consistent with applicable clinical and/or professional guidelines, state and local regulations and licensure requirements.


DHR solicits feedback from the SSW during the revision process. All recommendations will be considered by DHR and may be included in the service standards. Additionally, the community-at-large can submit suggestions during an open comment period at the end of the revision process. DHR provides documentation of service standards revisions to the public.
