Addressing Barriers to Care: the Med-HEART Project
The Health & Disability Working Group and Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program have partnered to establish the Med-HEART (Medical Home-HIV Evaluation & Resource Team) project that serves as evaluation and technical assistance center for nine demonstration sites. As part of a five-year HRSA initiative, Building Medical Homes for Multiply Diagnosed HIV Homeless Populations, these sites will design, implement, and evaluate innovative interventions to improve timely entry, engagement, and retention in HIV care and supportive services for people who are homeless and living with HIV.
