  Purpose

This outcome evaluation effort provides the opportunity to learn what programmatic approaches effectively address two of the most difficult hurdles in HIV health services delivery: (1) getting people who would benefit from health care to use it and (2) getting people who do use health care to do so more consistently and effectively. The New York HIV Planning Council (through MHRA) has funded 23 agencies to achieve these objectives for people of color with HIV disease.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Functional Health Status (ACTG SF-21): at 3, 6, and 12 mos.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Housing stability: at 3, 6, and 12 months
  • Substance use: at 3, 6, and 12 months
  • Whether receiving HIV primary care: at 3, 6, and 12 months
  • Whether on HIV meds: at 3, 6, and 12 months

Estimated Enrollment: 5100
Study Start Date: November 1999
Estimated Study Completion Date: November 2006
Detailed Description:

All clients are assessed upon entry into the program, have their service utilization tracked, and then are reassessed at three, six, and twelve months following program entry.

The main client-level data elements collected during baseline and follow-up interviews are the following:

  • Biological markers (including HIV status, viral load, t-cell count)
  • Demographic characteristics
  • Adherence to treatment
  • Barriers to care
  • Social support
  • Substance use and treatment
  • Functional health status

Functional Health Status is used in this evaluation as the primary measure of final client “outcomes.” The Functional Health Status items we use are from the ACTG SF-21 (a modified version of the Medical Outcomes Study instrument).

The overall evaluation objectives are to:

  • Describe the change in functional health status for different populations and groups of clients.
  • Identify services or constellations of services and intensity of services associated with change in functional health status.
  • Assess whether programs meet intermediate objectives (decreased drug use, increased service use, improved housing stability).
  • Identify barriers to access to and maintenance in care.
