About Project CAATCH

Project CAATCH (Consumer Access and Adherence to Care for HIV) uses evidence informed practices, including motivational interviewing, to address identified gaps in the continuum of care for client retention and viral load suppression measures. This initiative delivers a curriculum of educational sessions to promote client engagement and retention, in order to increase overall rates of viral suppression for all MassCARE enrolled clients over 18 years of age at three MassCARE clinic locations in Massachusetts.

  1. The HIV viral life cycle and medications at work
  2. Communicating with health care providers
  3. Understanding basic lab tests (CD4, viral load and others)
  4. Managing stigma and disclosure
  5. HIV and substance use disorders
  6. HIV and wellbeing
