Case Management Training Institute

The Case Management Training Institute (CMTI), generously funded by the CT Department of Housing, was created to provide a comprehensive training program for individuals with case management responsibilities in AIDS services, AIDS housing, domestic violence, homeless shelters, and transitional living programs, regardless of how the positions are funded (i.e. DPH, HOPWA, DOH, and DMHAS).

Undetectable=Untransmittable (U=U)

Presented by Pat Caya, Merck

A groundswell of research confirms that when a person living with HIV is on effective treatment, it will reduce the level of HIV to "undetectable" levels which protects their health and makes them incapable of transmitting HIV to their sexual partners, or what we call "Undetectable= Untransmittable: U=U". As a prevention strategy, this is often referred to as Treatment as Prevention.
  • The U=U message is an unprecedented opportunity to transform the lives of millions of people with and affected by HIV and to radically transform the field:
  • Improves the lives of people living with HIV by dramatically reducing the shame and fear of sexual transmission and opening up possibilities for conceiving children without alternative means of insemination.
  • Dismantles HIV stigma on the community, clinical, and personal level.
  • Encourages people living with HIV to start and stay on treatment, which keeps them and their partners healthy.
  • Strengthens advocacy efforts for universal access to treatment, care, and diagnostics to save lives and bring us closer to ending the epidemic.
During this training you will get a better understanding of why U=U is a game changer for people living with HIV and how U=U and is changing the narrative of HIV Treatment and Care.
