HIV Prevention and Care Continuum, Co-Morbidities, and Translational Research Branch


This Branch supports research to understand and prevent adverse health outcomes among people at highest risk of acquiring HIV as well as people living with HIV/AIDS. The Branch also encourages the translation and adoption of effective interventions into community-based clinical, treatment, and other settings. Priorities in this program include the development and testing of theory-driven interventions to improve linkage to HIV prevention and care, adherence to prevention and treatment therapies, and promotion of other biobehavioral prevention interventions to reduce HIV acquisition and transmission, promote healthy lifestyle choices, and reduce high-risk behaviors.
