Structural Interventions for HIV Prevention

Optimizing Strategies for Reducing New Infections and Improving Care

Edited by Richard A. Crosby and Ralph J. DiClemente

  • An assembly of best-in-science structural approaches to preventing new HIV infections
  • Chapters address structural interventions at every scale and across diversity of settings, including developing and developed countries, institutional/organizational, social (e.g., food and housing), and from primary-care perspective
  • Specific coverage of interventions centered on policy, environment, and social/community norms
  • Innovative coverage of behavioral and social-science theory as it applies to HIV prevention
  • Contributions from world's leading scholars in HIV/AIDS and its prevention
  • Offers a more cost-effective and sustainable counternarrative to biomedical HIV interventions, which traditionally draw attention and funding while delivering less efficacy
  • An ideal course text for graduate-level courses in public health, epidemiology, and social medicine, or for any HIV health practitioner (particularly those facing budgetary constraints)
