An In-depth Examination of the Seek, Test, Treat and Retain (STTR) Framework in Four Criminal Justice Population Research Studies

In 2010, the National Institute of Drug Abuse implemented an initiative targeting the “Seek, Test, Treat, and Retain” (STTR) paradigm with HIV-infected drug abusers in criminal justice populations.
