Blog Post Discusses Role Of Structural Interventions In HIV Prevention Efforts

IDSA’s “Science Speaks”: Keeping the balance in how we prevent HIV: Evaluating structural interventions
In this guest post, Jim Thomas, associate professor of epidemiology in the Gillings School of Global Public Health and director of the MEASURE Evaluation project in the Carolina Population Center at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, discusses the role of structural interventions in preventing HIV. Thomas writes, “To pursue structural interventions is not to back off on clinical interventions. But by the same token, pursuing clinical interventions should not mean backing off from addressing underlying and pernicious structural factors. Unlike smallpox, this complex epidemic requires a multifaceted approach” (1/8).
