The University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) will serve as the Evaluation and Technical Assistance Center (ETAC) for this initiative. The ETAC will coordinate the multi-site evaluation; provide programmatic technical assistance to the demonstration sites; and lead publication and dissemination efforts of best practices and lessons learned. UCSF will work with the SPNS program to support 15 demonstration sites in all aspects of the development, implementation, and evaluation of the projects funded under this initiative. Efforts will be informed by extensive experience and expertise in the training and evaluation of practice transformative models and other health systems innovations. UCSF will provide leadership and support to demonstration sites implementing practice transformative models (PTMs) to improve health outcomes along the HIV care continuum.
