The Global HIV Archive: Facilitating the Transition from Science to Practice of Efficacious HIV Prevention Interventions

This paper describes the development, content, and capabilities of the online Global HIV Archive (GHA). With the goal of facilitating widespread adaptation and appropriate use of efficacious HIV prevention programs throughout the globe, GHA has: 1) expanded and updated the search for HIV prevention programs originating in low-resource countries; 2) identified those meritorious HIV prevention programs meeting established efficacy criteria of technical merit, replicability, and positive outcomes; 3) prepared both implementation and evaluation materials from the efficacious programs for public use; 4) developed interactive wizards or capacity-building tools to facilitate appropriate program selection, implementation, and adaptation; 5) made the efficacious programs and accompanying wizards available to health practitioners throughout the globe in both printed and online formats.
