Strategies to provide care for people experiencing homelessness and living with HIV shared with HHS staff

Results of initiative presented at HRSA headquarters in Rockville, MD

On June 27, the grantees of the initiative Building a Medical Home for Multiply Diagnosed HIV-Positive Homeless Populations convened a day-long meeting to present results to staff from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA), and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). They presented the strategies that collectively led to more than 1300 people nationwide being served over the five-year initiative. CAHPP partnered with Boston Health Care for the Homeless to serve as the Evaluation and Technical Assistance Center for the project, known as Med-HEART. Materials from the meeting will be posted over the next several days. To learn more about the initiative, visit the Med-HEART project page.
