Abstract:

C2P is the primary prevention infrastructure of the Adolescent Medicine Trials Network for HIV/AIDS Interventions (ATN), a National Institutes of Health funded network that conducts research related to youth (i.e., ages 12–24) who are living with or are at risk for HIV. The primary research objective of C2P is to determine whether structural changes achieved by C2P coalitions have an effect on individual risk factors associated with HIV transmission and acquisition.

This presentation will provide an overview of C2P and highlight the importance of community mobilization as a component to our jurisdictional response to High-Impact HIV-Prevention

Addressing the HIV epidemic at a structural level by working with community coalitions to alter policies, practices, programs, and/or physical environments that are associated with increased risk for HIV among youth.
