Peer Navigators are part of diverse care teams and are very hands-on initially to help clients navigate processes and systems they may not know about. The goal of peer navigation is to help remove client barriers, improve access to HIV prevention and care services in order to improve client self-efficacy, quality of life, and empowerment through increased knowledge. As role models living with a shared community experience, Peer Navigators provide unique and special support to help overcome the fear and anxiety of going through a service process alone.
Peer Navigators are not meant to replace case managers. Rather, they are intended to enhance the efforts of case managers. With the help of a Peer Navigator, clients can brainstorm solutions to address concerns and needs effectively, all while maintaining confidentially and being HIPPA compliant.
