Using Evidence-Informed Interventions to Improve Health Outcomes among People Living with HIV (E2i)

Using Evidence-Informed Interventions to Improve Health Outcomes among People Living with HIV (E2i)

E2i will identify and provide support for the implementation of evidence-informed interventions to reduce HIV-related health disparities and improve health outcomes, including increasing retention in care, improving treatment adherence, and improving viral suppression for people living with HIV/AIDS. 

Implementation and Technical Assistance Center

Fenway Community Health Center, Inc. is the Evidence-Informed Interventions Coordinating Center for Technical Assistance (E2i CCTA) for this project, under a four-year HRSA/HAB cooperative agreement (August 2017 - July 2021). Up to 24 Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program-funded recipients/subrecipients will be subawarded to support the implementation of evidence-informed interventions. The evidence-informed interventions will be in four focus areas:

  1. Improving HIV health outcomes for transgender women.
  2. Improving HIV health outcomes for black men who have sex with men (MSM).
  3. Integrating behavioral health with primary medical care for people living with HIV/AIDS.
  4. Identifying and addressing trauma among people living with HIV/AIDS.

Evaluation Center

The University of California San Francisco will serve as the Evidence-Informed Interventions Evaluation Center (E2i EC) for this project. The goal of this four-year HRSA/HAB cooperative agreement (August 2017 - July 2021)  is to evaluate the outcomes and impact of the evidence-informed interventions implemented through the initiative.
