New Resources to Support Rapid Start Implementation

Providing antiretroviral therapy (ART) to people within seven days of new HIV diagnosis or re-engagement in care—Rapid Start—has been shown to increase rates of ART uptake and markedly reduces time to viral suppression compared to later ART initiation.

To support Rapid Start implementation, CAI worked with Ryan White HIV/AIDS-funded programs from across the country and packaged what we learned into a set of resources that showcase their best practices for implementing Rapid Start.
