Capacity Building Assistance Sites

A core part of the REINFORCE initiative is to provide tailored capacity building assistance (CBA) activities to select organizations to improve HIV retention and re-engagement in care rates. HealthHIV delivers CBA to these sites to: identify gaps; adapt and implement new models that improve retention and re-engagement of their clients in HIV care; and, facilitate system-level improvements that improve health outcomes, patient care experiences, and quality of life for clients with HIV at risk of being lost-to-follow-up.
The following sites are receiving CBA through this initiative:
