Despite substantial declines in HIV transmission and increases in lifespan among those living with HIV over the past decade, the full potential of existing interventions have not been realized among youth, in large part because efficacious interventions for this age group have not been brought to scale. Scale It Up has assembled research teams who are developing, testing, and bringing to practice self-management interventions that positively impact the youth HIV prevention and care cascades.
Led by Principal Investigators Naar (Florida State University) and Parsons (Hunter College), the research teams are:
- Designing, conducting, and evaluating self-management interventions, grounded in the 5-component Self-Management Model and expeditiously moving them into practice.
- Developing, deploying, and disseminating new methods for implementation and implementation analysis with a strong theoretical foundation (EPIS).
- Engaging with the other funded U19s to identify additional opportunities to advance the fields of implementation science and self-management science.
