Compendium of Evidence-Based Interventions and Best Practices for HIV Prevention

CDC's Prevention Research Synthesis (PRS) Project routinely updates an online Compendium of Evidence-Based Interventions and Best Practices for HIV Prevention by adding newly identified evidence-based interventions (EBI) and best practices that have been scientifically proven to significantly reduce HIV risk or promote HIV care. The compendium comprises three chapters: a new chapter lists best practices for promoting linkage to, retention in and re-engagement in HIV medical care; a chapter lists EBIs for promoting HIV medication adherence among persons with HIV; and a chapter lists behavioral EBIs for reducing sex or drug injection behaviors directly impacting HIV transmission risk.

Online “discussion rooms” where visitors can share success stories and challenges related to HIV prevention among adolescents. Resources where visitors can access a compilation of useful websites and tools related to HIV prevention and adolescents.
