Creating a one-stop shop for HIV implementation science research
A new publicly accessible special issue of the Journal of Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (JAIDS) — a premier HIV/AIDS research journal — reports new findings on how to end the HIV epidemic in the U.S. The free special issue will highlight HIV Implementation Science, which uses scientific methods to identify the best ways to implement effective HIV testing, prevention and treatment innovations.

Research findings typically take 17 years to move from the lab to clinical practice. Implementation science seeks to bridge this gap by addressing barriers and facilitators to improve the quality and effectiveness of health services.
