Our staff leads a multidisciplinary collaborative consisting of federal, state, and local leaders working together to improve linkage and retention in HIV care. The ten project sites selected to implement a Community Health Worker program into their medical care model receive guidance from experts in an array of relevant fields. Technical assistance, training, and coaching is provided by nationally respected collaborative partners.
