Archived Interventions

The CDC’s Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP) promotes a High Impact Prevention (HIP) approach which aims to reduce new HIV infections via implementation of interventions that are scientifically proven, cost-effective and scalable. To align with the HIP approach, starting in 2015 the Prevention Research Synthesis (PRS) Project shifted focus from evaluating the efficacy of all Risk Reduction (RR) interventions in the literature to only evaluating the efficacy of interventions targeted to people living with HIV (PLWH), men who have sex with men (MSM), and transgender persons. (Please see PRS Risk Reduction Prioritization Plan pdf icon[PDF – 111 KB] for further details.)

In conjunction with this effort, PRS has developed a Risk Reduction archival policy. Interventions published >10 years ago will be moved from main RR Chapter if that study does not meet one of the following criteria:

  1. Targets or includes >50% MSM or PLWH or transgender persons
  2. Supported EBI by the Capacity Building Branch (CBB) (see the Effective Interventions website)
