CAPUS Demonstration Project

CAPUS Demonstration Project

The Care and Prevention in the United States (CAPUS) Demonstration Project, funded by the Mississippi State Department of Health is a 3-year cross-agency demonstration project led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The purpose of the project is to reduce HIV and AIDS-related morbidity and mortality among racial and ethnic minorities living in the United States.

The CARE4ME Services program actively navigates and engages persons living with HIV/AIDS by promoting the importance of receiving healthcare and other services. The program’s main purpose is to help improve linkage, use, retention, and re-engagement into healthcare and services. Community health workers serve as a bridge in their communities and available healthcare services. CARE4ME is funded by the Mississippi State Department of Health under the Centers for Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Care and Prevention in the United States (CAPUS) funding opportunity.
