About the HIV Prevention Academy
The purpose of the Academy is to translate and disseminate recent HIV findings to researchers and community practitioners in the Triangle area, and to discuss the implications of these developments on the future of HIV research and practice.
Additionally, we would like to identify mechanisms to support researchers and practitioners in partnership around the recent developments and determine effective ways to disseminate information from the Evidence Academy to the community at-large.

HIV Prevention Evidence Academy
The last few years have been filled with exciting new developments in HIV prevention research and practice. As such, several organizations in the Triangle—including the NC Translational & Clinical Sciences (TraCS) Institute, FHI 360, the LinCS 2 Durham project, RTI International, and both the Duke and UNC Centers for AIDS Research (CFAR)—have combined efforts to host an HIV Prevention Evidence Academy to be held on Friday, February 17, 2012.
This one-day event will be held from 8:00am-5:00pm at RTI International, located in Research Triangle Park.
