Miriam receives $1.5 million from NIH to 'seek, test and treat' inmates with HIV
Date:11/9/2010

al investigator Curt Beckwith, MD, an infectious disease specialist at The Miriam Hospital, and colleagues at George Washington University and New York University will modify two interactive health communication tools, known as CARE and CARE+, which provide counseling and consent for rapid HIV testing in both clinical/community settings, for use within jails and prisons. The newly adapted tools will include additional content relevant and specific to inmates, including hepatitis C (HCV) infection and maintaining HIV treatment in the community following release, as well as text messaging capabilities. As part of the study, researchers will assess the feasibility and accessibility of these new tools among jail detainees in Rhode Island and Washington, DC, and will also analyze their cost-effectiveness.

The grants were awarded primarily by National Institute of Drug Abuse with additional support for Beckwith's study provided by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

"The Miriam Hospital and our partners are proud to lend our collective expertise to this important initiative. Having the support of the NIH will go a long way toward our shared goal of improving HIV care and treatment in correctional facilities and ensuring HIV interventions continue after individuals are released from prison," said Timothy Flanigan, MD, director of infectious diseases at Rhode Island and The Miriam hospitals.
