Developing Measures to Study How Structural Interventions May Affect HIV Risk

Principal Investigator: Enrique Rodriguez Pouget

Despite all research and prevention efforts, 56,000 new HIV infections take place in the United States each year. Many researchers and public health authorities are calling for research to develop "structural interventions" that change social and normative contexts so people can more easily avoid HIV risk. We aim to develop new measurement tools to let us understand why and how such structural interventions do or do not work-which is an essential part of the research needed to develop effective interventions.
