2iS Coordinating Center For Technical Assistance Awards 20 Ryan White Program Organizations

The 2iS Coordinating Center for Technical Assistance (2iS CCTA) has awarded 20 Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program recipient organizations across the United States with up to $190,000 in funding per year through 2025. These awards, funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s HIV/AIDS Bureau and led by The Fenway Institute in partnership with AIDS United, will be used for sites to implement effective, culturally tailored interventions as part of an initiative entitled Using Innovative Intervention Strategies to Improve Health Outcomes among People with HIV. The four intervention focus areas are: incarceration experience, LGBTQ+ youth, substance use disorder and telehealth services.

“We are thrilled to begin implementation of evidence-informed interventions for people living with HIV at 26 sites that are wonderfully diverse in terms of geography, organizational type, interventions offered and populations served,” said Alex Keuroghlian, MD, MPH, Principal Investigator for the 2iS CCTA. “This initiative will allow HRSA/HAB to rapidly disseminate lessons learned and ultimately help scale up best practices for effective implementation of interventions across all RWHAP recipient organizations, to significantly improve HIV health outcomes in the U.S.”

The initiative’s evaluation center is based at the University of California San Francisco’s Center for AIDS Prevention Studies, which will assess the impact of technical assistance by the CCTA on viral suppression and retention in care among people with HIV.

The selected sites, from California to Massachusetts, constitute a broad array of community-based organizations, federally qualified health care centers, public health departments and universities that will serve to improve health outcomes for a diverse population of people with HIV.
