Retaining in Care

Engagement in HIV/AIDS care falls along a continuum, from not being in care at all to being fully engaged, with interim points that reflect inconsistent and non-engagement in care. Varied interventions can enhance care engagement, including peer support, motivational interviewing, and case management. HRSA HAB through the SPNS program and other initiatives identify and evaluate innovative retention approaches, and produce replication materials for those showing the most promise. Many of these interventions focus on populations at most need, including youth, transgender women, and women and MSM of color.
