Central goals of the course are to foster student abilities to analyze the strength of research evidence to support novel interventions, understand key features of study design for HIV/STI prevention, and identify appropriate interventions based on settings and populations. Students gain an understanding of the current scope of the HIV/STI prevention agenda in research, public health programming, public policy, and clinical practice. This course is designed for graduate students in the School of Public Health and the School of Medicine, as well as graduate students in complementary fields, and upper-level undergraduates with a strong interest in HIV/STI prevention and instructor approval.
