As HIV has become an infection that may be managed much like other chronic diseases, a focus on treatment and prevention continues. Efforts to conduct HIV testing, engage infected individuals in care, and reduce HIV transmission risk are priorities as HIV prevalence rates increase. The HIV/AIDS Section seeks to disseminate study findings related to HIV testing, prevention, and treatment in order to improve future program planning and inform needed research efforts. This session is aimed to share latest research on topics related to community-based participatory research efforts in HIV . The section identified this area as a priority, as community-academic partnerships have been developed as an appropriate avenue for intervention programming and research. The section supported the development of session in order to share innovative approaches to HIV prevention efforts through community based participatory research.
Session Objectives: Describe community-academic partnerships that have been developed to address HIV prevention efforts in sensitive populations Explain examples of how community-based participatory research has been implemented to identify prevention opportunities List ethical considerations in community-based participatory research
