Two HIV prevention interventions developed by UCSF researchers have been selected as additions to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's 2008 Compendium of Evidence-based HIV Prevention Interventions.

The UCSF interventionsPositive Choice: Interactive Video Doctor and the Healthy Living Projectcomprise two of the eight added to the list of 57 rigorously evaluated highly effective HIV prevention programs recommended by the CDC for implementation.

In addition, these UCSF research programs are among the first interventions to establish a reduction in the risk of transmission acts among people living with HIV, commonly called "prevention with positives." This has emerged as a top priority in CDC prevention planning because the approach can efficiently concentrate resources on reducing the number of new infections by engaging people living with HIV as partners in prevention.

Positive Choice: Interactive Video Doctor uses a video doctor to simulate the ideal doctor-patient risk counseling conversation.
