January 14, 2016 – ETR is excited to report the release of an important new book, Improving Access to HIV Care: Lessons from Five U.S. Sites, written by a team of authors that includes Dr. Vignetta Charles, ETR's Chief Science Officer. This vital text explores the dilemma of how to better link and retain people living with HIV in ongoing primary care.
A multipart case study examines successful strategies and provides detailed profiles of the organizations involved and their processes for reaching, linking, and retaining clients. Authors explore barriers to and facilitators of implementation, use network analysis to assess changes in interagency collaboration among organizations serving people living with HIV, and offer evidence-based recommendations for improving linkage to HIV care in the U.S.
