The Prevention Research Branch (PRB) mission is to conduct behavioral and operational research to develop, test, synthesize, and package sustainable interventions to prevent HIV transmission. PRB is made up of three teams: the Operational Research Team (ORT), Intervention Research Team (IRT), and Research Synthesis and Translation Team (RSTT).
The mission of the Prevention Program Branch (PPB) is to work with public and private partners to strengthen science-based HIV prevention efforts in states (Health Departments) and local communities (Community-Based Organizations).
The mission of the Epidemiology Branch is to conduct biomedical and behavioral epidemiologic research to reduce HIV infection and disease progression. Its projects include microbicide and antiretroviral prophylaxis, African-American and Hispanic research initiatives, vaccine research, mother-child transmission, and testing guidelines.
