Curriculum of educational sessions to promote client engagement and retention in HIV care in order to increase overall rates of viral suppression, based on evidence informed practices, including motivational interviewing, to address identified gaps in care.
When HIV is suppressed, or controlled by medications and other care, people are protected from HIV-related illnesses, and are much less likely to pass the virus to their sexual partners or unborn children. Another word for "viral suppression" is "undetectable" meaning the levels of HIV in a person's blood (viral load) are so low that the laboratory test cannot measure them.
