BESAFE Cultural Competency Model for HIV/AIDS Patients

From the Target Center, Tools for the Ryan White Community, BESAFE is a framework that uses culturally pluralistic content and perspectives based on these six core elements: Barriers to Care, Ethics, Sensitivity of the Provider, Assessment, Facts, and Encounters. The BESAFE series includes guides and promising practices that address cultural competency for specific racial/ethnic populations.
