Data from the project will be used to inform HIV prevention community planning groups, Ryan White Treatment Modernization Act (TMA) planning councils and consortia, providers of HIV care, people living with HIV Disease, and others to advocate for reducing the gaps in existing resources. The data from MMP will provide an opportunity for policy decisions, resource allocation, and evaluation of prevention and treatment initiatives at the local and national levels to be based on population-based data.
