Fellowships in Behavioral and Clinical Surveillance/HIV and AIDS Prevention

Posted: 5/2/2017 (Funding)

These fellowships offer the opportunity to participate on a high-priority, high-impact issue in domestic HIV surveillance. With 22 participating metropolitan project areas throughout the United States, the National HIV Behavioral Surveillance (NHBS) system collects and reports data on three populations at increased risk for HIV infection: men who have sex with men, persons who inject drugs and heterosexuals at increased risk in the United States. NHBS data are used to monitor issues affecting these populations, which include describing racial disparities, reporting HIV prevalence and awareness, exploring the prevalence HIV-related risk behaviors, such as drug use and sex, and examining access to HIV testing, care and prevention. NHBS collects data through personal interviews and HIV testing.  It is the only national source of data on HIV-negative populations and HIV-positive individuals aware/unaware of their infection. This fellowship will focus information management and documentation related to the NHBS questionnaire and will assist with dissemination of NHBS data.
