Utilizando la ciencia

¿Cómo se utiliza la ciencia en la prevención del VIH?

¿es necesaria la ciencia? Sí. Aunque la ciencia de la prevención por si sola no ofrece la respuesta, esta posee algunas piezas críticas del rompecabezas de la prevención. La ciencia en conjunto con la experiencia de algunas agencias en el manejo de clientes además de reforzar el programa sirve de inspiración y guía para hacer un mejor uso de los escasos fondos que enfrentan los programas de prevención.

Using science

How Is Science Used in HIV Prevention?

Is science needed?

Yes. While prevention science will not give “the answer,” science fills in critical pieces of the prevention puzzle. Science used in conjunction with an agency’s experience with clients can strengthen, inspire, target, and best use limited resources in HIV prevention programs. This fact sheet will cover some of the basic elements of prevention science, what they mean, and their implications for service. Using science in prevention is now mandated in many areas.

Colaboración entre proveedores e investigadores

¿Cómo pueden colaborar los proveedores de servicio y los investigadores?

¿por qué colaborar?

“La investigación sobre la prevención del VIH-por muy buena que sea-no detiene la infección del VIH. La investigación del comportamiento sobre el VIH sólo puede detener la infección del VIH si sus resultados se utilizan en el mejoramiento de programas ya implementados.”1 -Jeff Kelly

Toda persona que trabaja en el área de prevención de VIH quiere lograr disminuir la propagación del VIH.

Research/service provider collaboration

How Can Service Providers and Researchers Collaborate in HIV Prevention?

Why collaborate?

“Research on HIV prevention—no matter how good—does not stop HIV infection. HIV behavioral research can only stop HIV infection when results of the research can be used to make applied programs better.”1 -Jeff Kelly

Everyone working in HIV prevention wants to know that their efforts make a difference towards halting the spread of HIV.

The Legacy Project: Lessons Learned About Conducting Community-Based Research

Since 1991, the Center for AIDS Prevention Studies (CAPS) has conducted collaborative research with local community-based HIV prevention organizations within a consortium model. Community-based research (CBR) refers to research that is conducted by or with the participation of community members. As conducted by CAPS, CBR was a full partnership, with the CBO partner taking the lead on developing the research question, delivering the intervention, and collecting the data.

Seroconversion Narratives for AIDS Prevention (The SNAP Project)

As people are living longer and healthier lives with HIV, the risk of HIV transmission through unprotected sexual intercourse or sharing injection equipment continues to grow. While the general consensus is that most people who know they are HIV+ are careful to avoid transmitting the virus, it is estimated that one third of HIV+ gay/bisexual men continue to engage in unprotected sex. There is now a growing call to develop targeted and effective prevention strategies addressing the specific needs of people living with HIV.
