Strengthening the Impact of Community Health Workers on the HIV Care Continuum in the US (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)
The purpose of this RFA is to promote research on the use of community health workers (CHW) to improve the HIV care continuum in the United States (US). The RFA will support research on the effectiveness of scalable tools, trainings, and strategies designed to strengthen the ability of CHW to improve HIV care among people living with HIV (PLH). Research applications must incorporate a patient outcome related to the HIV care continuum, such as care engagement, antiretroviral adherence, or viral suppression. Effectiveness research that identifies the mediators and mechanisms through which CHW make impact is also encouraged, along with cost-effectiveness analyses.
