TRIP: Transforming Research into Prevention
TRIP goal of this program is to enhance the capacity of local HIV prevention organizations to implement and sustain effective and feasible behavioral interventions by making intervention materials and training more widely available. To accomplish this goal, this program will aid in the conversion of the technical language of an already selected evidenced-based intervention (EBI) into easy to read language and to create user-friendly intervention packages containing implementation manuals, training curricula, and other technical assistance materials for use by HIV prevention providers.
