Access, Affordability and Insurance Design

Building Capacity to Improve HIV Viral Suppression Data in Medicaid

NASTAD (National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors), in partnership with AcademyHealth and the University of California San Francisco, are collaborating on a four-year Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) grant focused on building state capacity to report HIV viral suppression data through the HVL-AD measure as part of the annual Medicaid Adult Core Set.

Building Trust

While studies have documented a lack of trust in the healthcare system, little evidence exists on how to build trust and mutual respect to address and overcome the health inequities that exist. Projects under the Building Trust and Mutual Respect to Improve Health Care program seek to understand the level of trust patients have across the many facets of the health care system.
