Program Science in STI and HIV Prevention—Global Challenges and Emerging Experience
James Blanchard, MD, PhD, MPHJune 27, 2013: 1:00 – 2:00PM ET
“Program Science” is a relatively new construct that has emerged to help address the gap between the domains of public health programs and scientific research. In this presentation Dr. Blanchard will discuss the challenges and issues for developing, synthesizing and translating scientific knowledge into the design and implementation of public health programs focusing on STI and HIV prevention. Examples from several different countries in diverse epidemiological and socio-cultural contexts will be used to illustrate emerging approaches to improve assessment and program strategies, definition of programs and prevention services, and measuring the progress and achievement of programs.
This webinar is presented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Division of STD Prevention and The American Sexually Transmitted Diseases Association as part of their quarterly STD Prevention Science Series.
