Guided by the National HIV/AIDS Strategy for the United States, CDC provides national leadership and support for the implementation of a high-impact prevention approach to reducing new HIV infections by using combinations of scientifically proven, cost-effective, and scalable interventions and prevention strategies directed towards the most vulnerable populations in the US who are most affected by, or at greatest risk for, HIV infection.

Evidence-based interventions (EBIs) are identified through reviewing the scientific literature and listed in the Compendium of Evidence-based Interventions. Resources on selected EBIs and other public health strategies are provided to HIV prevention partners in support of high-impact prevention.
The purpose of this website is to provide information to CBOs and health departments that are or will be implementing CRCS (formerly known as Prevention Case Management or PCM) – an intensive, individual level, client-centered risk reduction intervention for people at high risk for HIV infection or transmission.
Individual-level and group-level risk reduction interventions are effective in increasing condom use and reducing unprotected sex. These types of interventions, however, focus on an individual’s personal risk and do not address barriers beyond the individual, such as not having access to condoms.
The CDC announced a five-year HIV prevention funding opportunity for health departments in states, territories, and select cities. Providing funding to health departments has long been a central component of CDC’s HIV prevention strategy, and is CDC’s single largest investment in HIV prevention.
The CDC, HRSA, NIH, and the HIV Medicine Association of the Infectious Diseases Society of America recommended in 2003 that providers of HIV clinical care promote several interventions to improve the health of, and prevent ongoing HIV transmission from, adults and adolescents infected with HIV in the United States.
