The Journal of the International AIDS Society (JIAS) has opened a call for papers for a new special issue on “Data-driven HIV prevention: the HIV prevention cascade and beyond” to be published in conjunction with the 23rd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2020). The content of this special issue will be guided by Guest Editors James Hargreaves (LSHTM), Simon Gregson (ICL), Bernadette Hensen (LSHTM), and Judith Auerbach (UCSF).
HIV prevention programmes can achieve greater impact through better collection, analysis and use of data to assess prevention needs, target interventions, monitor delivery and evaluate the impact of prevention strategies. The development and application of rigorous data-based approaches to HIV prevention programming has the potential to have a major impact on the epidemic in a range of settings.
Send your article by 15 July 2019 to be considered for the special issue. Submissions conducted in any setting and papers could include:
- Empirical papers reporting studies that collect, validate, analyze and/or use data to identify population HIV prevention needs, monitor prevention delivery, or evaluate programmatic approaches
- Papers that use data to operationalize “prevention cascade” frameworks or assess the strengths and limitations of alternative approaches to data-driven HIV prevention
- Systematic reviews in relevant areas
- Cost-effectiveness studies on data-driven HIV prevention approaches or reports on the current state of financing for data-driven HIV prevention
- Modeling studies that extend current approaches to provide improved strategic information to guide HIV prevention programming
- Descriptions and evaluations of data systems that provide decision makers with relevant information to inform HIV prevention decisions
- Policy analyses in relation to data-driven HIV prevention
