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 Evidence-Based Interventions (EBIs) and Best Practices in the Compendium are identified by the CDC’s Prevention Research Synthesis (PRS) Project through a series of ongoing systematic reviews.
The programs in REP are tested, science-based behavioral interventions with demonstrated evidence of effectiveness in reducing risky behaviors, such as unprotected sex, or in encouraging safer ones, such as using condoms and other methods of practicing safer sex.
