New York, NY (October 7, 2022) — Representatives from three national CAI projects that advance the federal Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. goals will be presenting their work at the 26th annual U.S. Conference on HIV/AIDS (USCHA), which kicks off in Puerto Rico this week.
USCHA is the largest HIV-related gathering in the United States, bringing together thousands of participants from all segments of the HIV epidemic. Trainers and support specialists from three CAI initiatives—Technical Assistance Provider innovation network (TAP-in), National HIV Classroom Learning Center, and Rapid Antiretroviral Treatment Dissemination Assistance Provider (DAP)—will share success stories and innovative, evidence-based practices on topics related to HIV treatment and prevention during six workshop sessions.
- Strategies to Enhance Linkage to Care for Justice-Involved PWH
- Take Control with PrEP: An Intervention for Women of Color
- Centering Patient Voices to Implement Rapid ART in RWHAP-Funded Settings
- “You Still There?”: Getting to Zero Through Engaging Online Trainings
- Expanding Rapid ART in San Juan: Implementing Clinic Capacity Assessments
- An Emergency Department Collaboration to Help End the HIV Epidemic
These initiatives represent just some of CAI’s work to train and support more than 100,000 professionals working in HIV-service organizations in the last five years alone.
“Through training, technical assistance, and community engagement projects, CAI has helped improve HIV services in the United States since the first days of the epidemic.” said Tony Jimenez, Senior Vice President at CAI and a workshop presenter. “Participating in USCHA is a valuable opportunity for us to share what we’ve learned and collaborate with colleagues as we work to advance the goal of ending the HIV epidemic.”
In addition to the national projects presenting at the conference, CAI works extensively with the New York State Department of Health Aids Institute and the New Jersey Department of Health, Division of HIV, STD, and TB Services, to end the HIV epidemic.
