Retention in Care
RiC grantee the Mazzoni Center in Philadelphia, PA helps to keep trans women living with HIV in care and on treatment through its peer-based Trans*Wellness Project.

AIDS United’s Retention in Care (RiC) Initiative is a three-year partnership with the MAC AIDS Fund to identify, document and evaluate innovative, emerging or promising program models for improving retention in care. The initiative uses a national evaluation framework that works hand-in-hand with local evaluators to document the ability of programs to improve individual health, affect systems change and measure cost effectiveness.

RiC grantees focus on populations that often experience some of the worst HIV-related health outcomes in the United States. The grantees implement programs to address a multitude of barriers to retention in care addressing one of the largest drop-off points along the HIV care continuum.

New research documents the dramatic impact viral suppression has on extending the lives of those living with HIV, and that it also substantially reduces new transmission. Thus, the need to improve along the care continuum plays a critical role in both care and prevention.
