Linking Testing to Care

REACH is implementing evidence-based treatment guidelines that would encourage people with HIV to get connected to care and initiate treatment early after diagnosis, and also have access to coverage of antiretroviral medication at no out-of-pocket cost.  

These strategies and systems will significantly help more than 95% of people with HIV across all priority populations to be able to adhere to necessary treatment. They will ensure people living with HIV have access to the medications and other supports needed to achieve and maintain a suppressed viral load throughout their lifetime. Engaging and retaining these populations in care offers the best opportunity to support their health, wellbeing and vitality.
