AIDS Policy Research Center
Working to ensure that AIDS prevention and health services research have maximum impact
The AIDS Policy Research Center (APRC) seeks to improve international, national, state, and local responses to challenges posed by the HIV/AIDS epidemic by conducting policy research and facilitating progressive interaction between UCSF research and policy decision-making.
The specific aims of the center are to
- assist UCSF scientists in better defining HIV/AIDS policy questions and in using the formal tools of policy analysis to produce more useful science
- conduct policy analyses and specific research projects on HIV policy, including evaluating policy interventions
- identify decision-makers and communicate to them the results of policy-related research
The AIDS Policy Research Center is partially supported by generous funds from the Until There's a Cure Foundation.
