Retention in Care Workgroup
Our members are people living with HIV/AIDS, care givers, Ryan White Program service providers, government representatives and community members.
Our vision is to eliminate disparities and improve health outcomes for all people living with or at risk for HIV/AIDS.
What We Do
On July 13, 2015, the Partnership authorized the creation of the Retention in Care (RiC) Workgroup, whose purpose was to:
- Examine data from the SDIS pertaining to retention in care in Ryan White Part A/MAI programs.
- Determine client characteristics and treatment factors that would inhibit or improve retention in care.
- Develop or modify protocols for adjusting care and treatment intensity based on specific client characteristics, or including certain service activities as a required activity for new or at-risk clients.
- Compare provider agencies based on their success in increasing treatment retention.
The Retention in Care Workgroup concluded its business in August 2017.
