This section provides guidance to programs on comprehensive risk counseling and services, condom distribution as a structural intervention, and the use of economic evaluation.
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.
The CDC Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention is pleased to provide a basic guide to the cost-effectiveness analysis of prevention interventions for HIV infection and AIDS.
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.
CDC provides leadership through the use of molecular surveillance tools to identify and respond to HIV transmission clusters. It conducts routine analyses to identify molecular clusters that are concerning for recent and rapid transmission of HIV. CDC also provides technical support to jurisdictions responding to HIV transmission clusters and outbreaks.
