The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Center for Health Care Strategies has chosen the UCSF Women's HIV Program, directed by Eddy Machtinger, MD, to be part of the Advancing Trauma-Informed Care national initiative.

The Women’s HIV Program will receive funding support and participate in a two-year learning collaborative to vet new approaches, exchange best practices, and advance practical strategies for implementing trauma-informed care.

In addition to the Women’s HIV Program, the pilot sites include: Center for Youth Wellness (San Francisco, CA); Montefiore Health System (Bronx, NY); Greater Newark Healthcare Coalition (Newark, NJ); Stephen and Sandra Sheller 11th Street Family Health Services (Philadelphia, PA); and San Francisco Department of Public Health, (San Francisco, CA).

Over two years, the pilot sites will test and enhance key clinical and organizational ingredients for a trauma-informed approach to care, guided by input from the learning collaborative and a national advisory committee as well as technical assistance from CHCS.
