Prevention and Linkage to Care Research: Active Grants

In 2012, we funded three collaborative projects to test and evaluate innovative approaches of two interventions intended to improve health outcomes and curb the HIV epidemic in California. Multi-disciplinary teams of investigators have since then worked to engage populations most adversely affected by HIV to provide testing and linkage to care plus antiretroviral treatment for those who are HIV positive (referred to as "TLC+"), while at-risk men who have sex with men (MSM) who are HIV negative have been offered pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP).

With an eye toward the essential role that PrEP will play in ending the epidemic in California, in 2015 CHRP funded two groups of grantees to initiate PrEP projects focused on women, and in 2016 CHRP funded three groups of grantees to initiate PrEP projects focused on transgender persons.
