amFAR Report: Curbing the HIV Epidemic by Supporting Effective Engagement in HIV Care

On October 13, The American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR) released a new report, “Curbing the HIV Epidemic by Supporting Effective Engagement in HIV Care: Recommendations for Health Plans and Health Care Purchasers,” which highlights the critical role of health plans and health care purchasers, including Medicaid and Medicare programs, marketplaces, and employers, in moving the nation toward ending the domestic HIV epidemic. According to the report, there are a relatively small number of actionable and meaningful steps that these entities can take that will improve health outcomes, reduce preventable HIV-related health spending, and contribute to the development of more tightly integrated systems of care.
