CBAM Paper cited in NEJM Journal Watch

On April 15, our paper “Trajectories of viral suppression in people living with HIV receiving coordinated care: Differences by comorbidities” was highlighted in the New England Journal of Medicine’s (NEJM) Journal Watch, where NEJM physician editors select and summarize important research, medical news, drug information, public health alerts and clinical guidelines across 12 specialties. The paper, led by Dr. Michael Li, assessed obstacles to improved HIV-cascade care for patients enrolled in the LA County Public Health Department’s Medical Care Coordination Program. NEJM notes that “These data support efforts to use funds available through the Ending the HIV Epidemic initiative to expand and maintain such programs, which otherwise would be cost-prohibitive.” Click here to access the original article.
