Situated in the US Deep South, at the epicenter of the domestic HIV epidemic, the overarching goal of the Scientific Working Group (SWG) is to lead the statewide effort to eliminate HIV in Alabama by promoting advances in HIV research and innovation. SWG membership reflects a broad range of clinical, epidemiologic, socio-behavioral, community, and implementation science experts working together. Our areas of research consist of scaling up proven HIV prevention interventions including pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) targeted to local HIV incidence informed by geospatial modeling, biomedical and behavioral intervention development to improve engagement in care and adherence to antiretroviral therapy to optimize viral suppression, and epidemiological and biostatistical methods to refine the measurement of baseline and post-intervention endpoints.
