Project: The Dissemination and Evaluation Center

Keywords: HIV/AIDS

Presented at the American Public Health Association (APHA) 2017 annual meeting, this roundtable discussion introduced an intervention that seeks to provide individual-level treatment to individuals with HIV who inject drugs and to create systems-level change to improve outcomes for this population. This intervention is currently being implemented at three clinics: University of Kentucky Bluegrass Cares Clinic, Lexington, KY; Centro Ararat, Ponce, Puerto Rico; and MetroHealth, Cleveland, OH. It is one of four interventions related to improving health outcomes along the HIV care continuum that are being evaluated by the Dissemination and Evaluation Center. Below are links to handouts that were distributed at the roundtable.
