A public-private partnership between the Washington DC Department of Health and the Washington AIDS Partnership was established to develop an HIV Medication Pipeline for ARVs and other HIV medications.

JSI provided technical assistance to support the design and implementation of the pipeline to: increase enrollment and retention rates of patients eligible to receive subsidized ARVs; maximize the use of funding for procurement of ARVs on the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) formulary; and implement supply chain management policies and best practices to ensure long-term sustainability of the ARV drug supply for the program.
