ABSTRACT
Despite substantial federal resources spent on HIV prevention, research, treatment, and care, as well as the availability and dissemination of evidence-based behavioral interventions, the disparate impact of HIV on African Americans continues. In October 2007, 3 federal agencies convened 20 HIV/ AIDS prevention researchers and care providers for a research consultation to focus on new intervention strategies and current effective intervention strategies that should be more widely disseminated to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic among African Americans. The consultants focused on 2 areas:(1)potential directions for HIV prevention interventions, defined to include behavioral, community, testing, service delivery, structural, biomedical, and other interventions; and (2) improved research methods and agency procedures to better support prevention research focused on African American communities.
