The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) intends to issue a Request for Applications (RFA) to solicit applications for research addressing HIV in criminal justice populations and empirically testing components of the “Seek, Test, and Treat” hypothesis including the development, implementation, and testing of strategies to improve the provision of HIV testing in criminal justice-involved populations and the provision of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) to HIV seropositive individuals involved with criminal justice system, with particular focus on continuity of HAART during and after community re-entry following incarceration.  Intervention research at the individual, organizational, or system level within the criminal justice system and community organizations working with criminal justice systems and populations will be appropriate for this RFA.
