Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) Frequently Asked Questions.
Eight recipients were chosen by HAB to be funded for the
Implementation of Evidence-Informed Behavioral Health Models to Improve HIV Health Outcomes for Black Men who have Sex with Men Initiative. These sites span across the country and a range of organizations. The recipients will adapt and implement HIV treatment and service models and approaches that include both medical and behavioral health components that take into consideration social, economic, and cultural factors needed to engage, link, and retain BMSM living with HIV in care and behavioral health services.
In addition to working with the ETAP, during this Initiative, recipients must collect and report relevant quantitative and qualitative outcome, process, and cost measure data to the ETAP. Recipients will also participate in the publication and dissemination of program findings and lessons learned in collaboration with the ETAP and HRSA program staff.
