Apply Today: Rapid Start Jurisdiction Learning Community

Nov 22, 2022 | Julia Zigman

Rapid Start has demonstrated the ability to achieve improvements in ART uptake, viral suppression, and retention in care. Ryan White-funded Jurisdictions have an important role to play in enabling swift replication of these approaches more broadly, at the point of care, as part of the nation’s plan to end the HIV epidemic.

Ryan White-funded jurisdictions are invited to join a small group of similarly motivated peers to participate in a virtual Learning Community to establish and foster Rapid Start strategy that draws on, coordinate, and enhances a broad range of linkage to care resources and giving health departments and providers tools to replicate them. Jurisdictions who have previously started or are currently developing Rapid Start services in their communities are especially encouraged to apply.

Jurisdictions participating in the Learning Community will participate in a variety of learning sessions, TA coaching calls, and action planning webinars over the course of 8 months (January 2023 – August 2023).

Through participation, Learning Community members will establish a network of peers across the country implementing Rapid Start and gain free access to both Subject Matter (SMEs) and Process Management Experts (PMEs) in monthly coaching and other direct technical assistance in implementing Rapid Start rollout.

For more information, including how to apply, please visit this page. Applications should take no more than 15 minutes to complete and are due December 15 to [email protected]. For questions, please contact [email protected].

This Learning Community is convened by CAI and NACCHO as part of the HRSA-funded Rapid Antiretroviral Treatment Dissemination Assistance Provider (DAP) project.
