Optimizing the HIV Care Continuum for Substance Abusing Populations at High-Risk and/or Living with HIV (R01)

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages research that examines the optimization of multiple components of the care continuum, such as HIV testing (identification) status, linkage and retention in care, and viral suppression for individuals with HIV for substance abusing populations at high-risk and/or living with HIV. There is limited evidence for how strategies that are successful in targeting one part of the HIV care cascade (linkage to care) can be integrated with interventions for other behaviors (ART adherence, retention in care). Moreover, the need to understand how government policies related to financing and clinical recommendations affect care, along with professional norms and the policies and guidelines established within individual clinics or organized systems of care effect the care continuum and HIV clinical outcomes, are critical. This FOA requires that applications include an examination beyond patient-level outcomes alone to include provider practices, system or organizational capacities, policies, and protocols; and structural issues including national, state/provincial or local policies that affect access to substance use and/or HIV care.
