UCSF tapped for US National AIDS Strategy initiative
Date:10/25/2011

The U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration has funded the UCSF Center for AIDS Prevention Studies to provide leadership and support to seven states implementing interventions to enhance HIV testing and diagnosis, linkage to and retention in high quality HIV care among populations who do not yet know their status or who have been previously diagnosed, but are not currently engaged in care.

The grant from the HRSA Special Projects of National Significance Program will total $1.5 million per year for four years and will aggressively tackle two of the three primary goals of the National AIDS Strategy: the second, increasing access to care and optimizing health outcomes and the third, reducing HIV-related health disparities.

"Recent studies point to gaps in testing, linkages to care and treatment success," said Janet J. Myers, PhD, MPH, associate professor of medicine at the UCSF Center for AIDS Prevention Studies (CAPS) and principal investigator of the project. " Of the 1.1 million people living with HIV in the U.S., about 20 percent are unaware that they are infected. Further, while about 75 percent of those diagnosed with HIV are linked to care within a year, only approximately 50 to 60 percent of people living with HIV are successfully retained in care over time. Consequently, barely a third of all people living with HIV in the U.S. maintain undetectable levels of virus in their blood, the gold standard for treatment success."

This initiative seeks to close these gaps by engaging people with HIV in high quality health care. A key goal of the program, Myers said, "is to bring about system wide structural changes to facilitate patients' success in care in these seven states."

UCSF CAPS will serve as the Evaluation and Technical Assistance Center for the seven demonstration states --Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, Wisconsin and Louisiana in the program, known as the Systems Linkag
