Replication of influential studies evaluating interventions for HIV prevention and treatment
Partnered Collections, Special Issues
Three decades of work on HIV prevention and treatment have yielded effective biomedical, behavioral, social, and structural interventions in controlled trials. Few of these have been adopted at a population level to prevent HIV. The effort needed to scale up any evidence-based intervention requires the results to be carefully reviewed, understood and confirmed. The International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) funded this Collection of replication studies to address this gap. The research covers topics related to HIV and AIDS, attempts to reproduce the original findings using existing data and any available study materials.
