Abstract:

In the United States (U.S.), health care policy plays a critical role in ensuring adequate care for people living with HIV (PLWH), eliminating new HIV infections, and reducing health disparities. The 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) was designed to make health care more accessible, of higher quality, and more affordable. Many provisions of the ACA are considered relevant to HIV care and prevention. Because PLWH have unique care needs and many groups at risk for infection are members of vulnerable populations, timely and comprehensive evaluation of the ACA in terms of HIV is critical. In this paper, we discuss components of the ACA relevant to HIV care and prevention, describe their anticipated and initial effects, and finally, outline a research agenda to inform future HIV programming and policy.
