Topic: Retaining in Care

Engagement in HIV/AIDS care falls along a continuum, from not being in care at all to being fully engaged, with interim points that reflect inonsistent and non-engagement in care. Varied interventions can enhance care engagement (e.g., HIV testing to help people learn their HIV status and enter care, motivational interviewing, street outreach, adherence support, case management to help clients navigate the health system, in-reach services within an HIV clinic like follow-up with patients).
