What is the purpose of the THRIVE collaborative?
THRIVE supports state and local health department demonstration projects to develop community collaboratives that provide comprehensive HIV prevention and care services for MSM of color. Each health department leads a collaborative that includes funded community-based organizations (CBOs) and other unfunded partners such as health care providers and behavioral health and social services providers in their jurisdictions (Figure 1). The collaborative models developed in THRIVE will be designed and implemented to be sustainable beyond the end of the project period.
Model for THRIVE Community Collaboratives
Collaboration to Provide Comprehensive HIV Prevention and Care Services for MSM of Color
Each health department grantee must fund local CBOs using at least 25% of its award to provide comprehensive HIV prevention and care services and behavioral health and social services for MSM of color. The health department will ensure that all THRIVE services are provided by including unfunded partners in the collaborative.
