Funding

Using Evidence from Science and Community Practice to Develop Web- and other Technology-Based Tools for HIV Treatment Service Provider Organizations to Improve Linkage, Retention, and Re-Engagement of HIV-Positive Persons in Care

Description
Grant Amount: Approximate Total Fiscal Year Funding: $900,000; Approximate Total Project Period Funding: $2,700,000.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announces the availability of Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 funds to implement FOA CDC-RFA-PS13-1311, Using Evidence from Science and Community Practice to Develop Web- and other Technology-Based Tools for Service Provider Organizations to Improve Linkage, Retention, and Re-Engagement of HIV-Positive Persons in Care.

The goal of this project is to enhance the capacity of HIV treatment service providers to improve linkage, retention, and re-engagement in HIV care by making materials and training more widely available. This cooperative agreement involves a project to identify and translate “model programs,” defined as evidence-informed strategies that have been identified in CDC systematic reviews (Crepaz et al., 7th International Conference on HIV Treatment Adherence, 2012; Higa, et al., Curr HIV/AIDS Reports, 2012), or innovative strategies and approaches based on best community practices for improving linkage and retention in HIV care, into web- and other technology-based tools. Model programs can include outreach, patient navigation, reminder and re-scheduling phone calls from clinic staff, coordinated medical-social support network, a youth-focused, client-centered approach, and bilingual/bicultural healthcare teams. Three (3) or more “model programs” will be translated into web- and other technology-based tools for implementation by HIV service provider organizations.
Specific activities to be conducted by the awardee include the following four steps:
(1) Conduct ethnographic assessments of “model programs” in three or more HIV treatment service provider agencies that are successful in linking and retaining HIV-positive persons in care. HIV treatment service providers defined for this FOA are agencies that provide care to people living with HIV/AIDS which may include community health centers (CHCs), AIDS service organizations (ASOs), HIV/STD treatment and care clinics, health departments, primary care physicians, and community based organizations (CBOs);
(2) Translate the “model programs” into web- and other technology-based tools including curricula, applications (e.g., tracking systems, spreadsheets, screeners), training manuals, and technical assistance and monitoring and evaluation materials;
(3) Pilot test the tools in six service provider agencies that have experienced difficulty linking, retaining, and re-engaging HIV-positive persons in care; and
(4) Refine the tools for potential dissemination by CDC.
The key outcomes for the 3-year project period include increasing the number and use of evidence-informed and community best practice tools to link, retain, and re-engage HIV-positive persons in HIV care; increasing the number of HIV-positive persons linked to, retained, and re-engaged in HIV care within six pilot agencies; and increasing the number of HIV positive persons on ART and with undetectable viral load within pilot agencies.
Some additional outcomes that are expected to occur beyond the 3-year project period include possible dissemination of evidence-informed tools via the CDC website; increasing the number of agencies using evidence-informed tools; increasing the number of HIV-positive persons adhering to ART within pilot agencies; and improving HIV treatment and care outcomes in agencies using evidence-informed tools to link, retain, and reengage HIV-positive persons in HIV care.
