The purpose of this program is to increase engagement in care for racial and ethnic medically underserved individuals with substance use disorders (SUDs) and/or co-occurring SUDs and mental health conditions (COD) who are at risk for or living with HIV. Award recipients will be expected to take a syndemic approach to SUD, HIV, and viral hepatitis by providing SUD treatment to medically underserved racial and ethnic individuals at risk for or living with HIV. With this program, SAMHSA aims to reduce the prevalence of substance use disorders, HIV and viral hepatitis while increasing access and linkage to HIV treatment for people in the population of focus with a SUD that are living with HIV.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the spread of HIV in the United States is mainly through anal or vaginal sex or by sharing drug-use equipment. However, although these risk factors are the same for everyone, due to a range of social, economic, and demographic factors, such as stigma, discrimination, income, education, and geographic region, some racial and ethnic groups are more affected than others when compared to their percentage of the United States population.
