SAMHSA's National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP) has included the Peer-Driven Intervention to Enroll Minorities/Women in HIV/AIDS Clinical Trials (ACT2) project (Marya Gwadz, PI) on its national registry of evidence-based programs and practices. To be included in the registry, a program must meet NREPP's minimum requirements for review and has been independently assessed and rated for Quality of Research and Readiness for Dissemination. The registry is a searchable online database of mental health and substance abuse interventions. Read more about the ACT2 intervention on SAMHSA's NREPP website.

Computerized Counseling Improves Care for Persons Living with HIV

CARE+, a computerized counseling intervention to improve antiretroviral therapy (ART) and reduce transmission by people living with HIV, was found to reduce HIV viral load, increase the percentage of ART medication doses and decrease sexual transmission behaviors. In addition, the CARE+ intervention was well received by participants. They judged it to as much or more helpful than face-to-face counseling from a staff member. See more details of these findings in our new fact sheet.
