This program provides grants for projects designed to improve understanding of viral suppression and HIV transmission in the U.S. using population-level epidemiology, tools from data science approaches, and implementation science research.

Research may include:

  • Improved accuracy and speed to describe the epidemiology of HIV transmission or care indicators at jurisdictional and national population levels
  • Data-driven epidemiology to evaluate HIV care in a timely manner and stratified by sub-populations, such as by gender, transmission risk, race, age, or geographic region
  • Data-based epidemiology approaches to understand long-term viral suppression and the correlates and predictors of success
  • Research to uncover novel correlates and predictors of initial and sustained HIV viral suppression capitalizing on a rich understanding of the contextual factors impacting suppression
  • Implementation science research that combines knowledge derived from epidemiology, data science and or modeling with on-the-ground experiences to improve viral suppression
