HIV/AIDS Prevention Research Synthesis Project
The HIV/AIDS Prevention Research Synthesis (PRS) Project identifies evidence-based HIV behavioral interventions (EBIs) to help HIV prevention planners and providers in the United States select interventions most appropriate for HIV prevention within their communities. These are listed in the Compendium of Evidence-based HIV Behavioral Interventions.
The EBIs listed in the Compendium represent the strongest HIV behavioral interventions in the scientific literature to date that have been rigorously evaluated and have demonstrated evidence of efficacy.
The EBIs are identified by PRS through a series of ongoing efficacy reviews of risk reduction (RR) interventions and medication adherence (MA) interventions where explicit a-priori efficacy criteria (RR criteria; MA criteria) are used to determine which interventions have been rigorously evaluated and have demonstrated sufficient evidence of efficacy. The PRS project will regularly update this Compendium as new EBIs are identified and will add new Chapters to the Compendium as new topics relevant to high-impact prevention are included.
