Nash, D., Robertson, M. M., Penrose, K., Chamberlin, S., Robbins, R. S., Braunstein, S. L., … & Irvine, M. K. (2018). Short-term effectiveness of HIV care coordination among persons with recent HIV diagnosis or history of poor HIV outcomes. PLoS One, 13(9), e0204017.
Researchers aimed to better understand how Care Coordination Programs (CCP) affect PLWH by having one group that was a part of a CCP and another that wasn’t. After 12-months individuals, viral loads before and after the study were compared. It was found that those in the CCP who had been recently diagnosed benefited the greatest from the program, so it is hypothesized that CCPs help with the initial hurdles of accessing and adhering to ART.
