This proposal supports an academic-non-profit partnership between UVA and NASTAD that will allow a public health focused multi-decade survey about state AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAPs), a key part of the United States’ HIV care safety net, to be used for research for the first time. One aim is to investigate the health policy and structural racism that could be responsible for viral suppression disparities across states. The second aim is to understand the impact of COVID-19 on the state ADAPs.
