Description

The proposed initiative will use an implementation science approach to adapt behavioral health evidence-based interventions for people with co-occurring HIV and mental health conditions with needs that have not been well met by traditional approaches. This project prioritizes the needs of people with co-occurring HIV and mental health conditions who are out of care or experiencing serious barriers to staying in care. In addition, this project aligns with the HIV/AIDS Bureau’s new Quality of Life (QoL) Framework , presenting as an exciting opportunity to test the framework in the context of evidence-based interventions aimed at improving physical, emotional, and social QoL. The proposed initiative is comprised of one Evaluation Provider (EP) and one Implementation and Technical Assistance Provider (ITAP) who will be funded under a companion project proposal. The funded ITAP will subcontract up to ten implementation sites. The funded EP will work collaboratively with the concurrently funded ITAP to identify behavioral health evidence-based interventions to be adapted and implemented by the implementation sites. The EP will develop and lead a multi-site evaluation across the implementation sites in alignment with the HAB IS framework. The evaluation will focus on assessing barriers and facilitators to implementation, assessing implementation strategies, and evaluating both implementation and client/services outcomes. As part of the implementation science evaluation, the EP will also be responsible for selecting appropriate implementation, client, and service outcome measures, including QoL measures that align with the HAB QoL Framework. The EP will also conduct a cost analysis.
