HIV Research: Implementation and Evaluation Experience
As a leader in both cutting-edge health research and program implementation, RTI plays a unique role in global efforts to achieve an AIDS-free generation. We conduct rigorous clinical, biomedical, socio-behavioral and implementation research in HIV prevention, treatment, care and structural interventions; key populations at risk for HIV; youth and HIV; and transition/sustainability planning. Our research and evaluation findings inform the U.S. and global response to HIV, while our evidence-based programs and technical assistance support the achievement of UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets for testing, treatment, and viral load suppression.
For more than 25 years, RTI has conducted HIV research in 60+ countries around the world, spanning the United States, sub-Saharan Africa, Central and South Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe. We work with and on behalf of a range of U.S. federal agencies, international health ministries, local governments, donors, foundations, and other clients seeking to control the HIV epidemic globally.
We work with the following populations:
People living with HIV
Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men
People who inject drugs
People who engage in sex work
People with alcohol and drug problems
Adolescent girls and young women
Homeless and marginally housed individuals
Individuals involved in the criminal justice system
Edited by RTI's Wendee Wechberg, HIV Pioneers collects 29 "first stories," bringing to life the harrowing reality of those early days of the AIDS epidemic.
