My name is Felisha Holt, an advocate who is resilient, and detail-oriented Case Manager with over five years of experience in the management, legal, and case management field.
I hold a Bachelor of Laws Degree (LL.B), and I’m currently in the process of obtaining a Case Management Certificate from the Ministry of Health. I use my legal and Case Management education as a strength-based approach to advocate for the psychosocial support as well as the medical rights and concerns of People living with HIV (PLHIV).
I currently serve at the Jamaican Network of Seropositives in the capacity of a Case Manager where I provide PLHIV with services such as adherence counseling, coordination, and follow-up of medical services and psychosocial support which includes: assistance in obtaining housing, financial support, legal services, and any other needed social service. My main role as a Case Manager is to ensure that PLHIV has timely and efficient access to comprehensive medical care and psychosocial services. These medical and psychosocial services are used to prevent disease transmission, delay of HIV progression as well as to promote independence and self-sufficiency for PLHIV. In addition, I also host and coordinates Treatment Literacy sessions across the Island of Jamaica.
