Abt Associates: Bold thinkers driving real-world impact
BETHESDA, MD— The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Reporting System represents an unprecedented opportunity to evaluate the degree to which former inmates are linked with HIV care and support – an important step toward reducing HIV incidence – a new paper from researchers at Abt Associates and their co-authors at Miriam/Lifespan Hospital finds.
The paper, “Linked into Care Study (LINCS): Released HIV-positive offenders’ linkage into Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program services,” was presented during the annual AcademyHealth meeting, held June 24-26 in Orlando, Fla. Abt co-authors include Michael Costa and Liza Solomon.
