This page is a collection of lessons learned, best practices, and tools,
gleaned from the AIDS United Retention in Care initiative. While the
initiative has ended, we hope that the information on this page will
help inform AIDS service organizations as they work to provide the best
care possible to people living with HIV.
Retention in Care was a three-year initiative launched by AIDS United in partnership with the M·A·C AIDS Fund to address key barriers to HIV care. The initiative supported seven community-based organizations to develop innovative approaches to address specific barriers to care and better reach underserved people living with HIV. The initiative sheds new light on the role of stigma, discrimination, and social determinants of health on retention in care and provides several promising approaches that could dramatically improve the way HIV care is delivered.
The models used by Retention in Care grantees were as varied as the clients they served. However, they all had key elements in common—evidence-based approaches, innovation, and a commitment to removing barriers to help clients stay in lifesaving care.

From the many ways to meaningfully engage peers to implementing a housing-first model, these resources are tailored to help organizations providing HIV care services expand their retention-in-care capacity.
This Retention in Care initiative was supported by a grant from AIDS United and the M•A•C AIDS Fund.
