Community- and Evidence-Based HIV Interventions
Since 1994, RTI International has led a progression of key studies in community-based research. Applying our research, we work with communities to address social problems where they are found by
Engaging hard-to-reach populations in community-based settings
Developing and evaluating appropriate interventions with community involvement
Disseminating research findings to the communities in which we work
Substance Abuse Treatment Evaluations and Interventions (SATEI) Program
The mission of the RTI Substance Abuse Treatment Evaluations and Interventions (SATEI) program is to conduct high-quality, multidisciplinary research that evaluates substance abuse treatment processes and develops and tests the impact and effectiveness of interventions for substance abusers and other high-risk, underserved populations in community-based settings. We also work with federal organizations to measure and evaluate the performance of substance abuse prevention and treatment services.
Under the direction of Dr. Wendee Wechsberg, SATEI maintains field sites in North Carolina, South Africa, and Republic of Georgia. At these sites, we bring RTI's scientific expertise into partnership with community agencies and a community advisory board of citizens and professionals who are dedicated to improving the lives of substance abusers.
