Evidence Category

There are three categories of intervention strategies for the RWHAP:

  • Emerging interventions—Innovative strategies that address emerging priorities for improving the care and treatment of people with HIV. Real-world validity and effectiveness have been demonstrated but do not yet have published research evidence.

  • Evidence-informed interventions—Published research evidence meets both HRSA and CDC evidence-informed criteria but does not meet Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) criteria for evidence-based interventions.

  • Evidence-based interventions—Published research evidence supporting these interventions meets CDC criteria for being evidence-based.
