Public Policy Research

Public policy research is the foundation upon which the agency’s advocacy and education efforts are based. The research program includes analysis and interpretation of information about the AIDS pandemic, related health care issues, and the social impact of disease on society.

Such research is critical to advocacy and education programs that positively impact prevention, treatment, and care services. The AIDS Institute’s Center for Public Policy Research and Ethics conducts and coordinates a range of studies with this goal in mind. Academic research and learning opportunities for students and interns are available through the agency.

August 15, 2007

Inmates, particularly women, are afflicted with a concentration of the epidemics that face the general population.
