CRI HIV research team

Community Research Initiative (CRI) is an independent, nonprofit, community-based organization in New England dedicated to HIV and hepatitis C clinical research, treatment education, and financial assistance for approved HIV drug treatments and health insurance coverage.

Groundbreaking research conducted by the CRI research team–which you helped make possible!–was published this week in the New England Journal of Medicine. CRI Research Director Dr. Amy Colson is a co-author on the article, which discusses the results of the ION-4 clinical trial conducted at CRI and other research sites in 2014. Also covered in this issue of the New England Journal of Medicine is the important START trial, for which CRI is a study site.


HDAP staff, in collaboration with the Office of HIV/AIDS (OHA) of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, have recently conducted two webinars to provide information on HDAP and the ACA, navigating the new MA Health Connector, and on special considerations for clients with HIV and their case managers.
