Abstract

© Meharry Medical College. In 2011, the Health Resources and Services Administration launched the Systems Linkage and Access to Care for Populations at High Risk of HIV Infection Initiative. Six state Departments of Health were funded to develop and implement HIV testing, linkageto-care, and retention-in-care interventions over a four-year period. We conducted qualitative interviews with stakeholders (n = 68) involved in intervention development and/or implementation in order to characterize and compare the interventions; assess factors shaping the implementation of different interventions; and identify barriers to and facilitators of linkage and retention interventions. Our findings provide important lessons learned for achieving a more coordinated state-level response to the HIV epidemic.
