In September 2009, the Health Resources and Services Administration, (HRSA) HIV-AIDS Bureau funded 11 programs to engage and retain women of color (WoC) living with HIV in care. This field report describes the rationale for this Special Project of National Significance (SPNS) initiative, the 11 programs in terms of their theoretical frameworks as well as the contexts and mechanism of care, and outlines some factors that may influence engaging and retaining WoC in care.
