Co-Chairs:

Implementation science has garnered much attention as recent experience has demonstrated that there is an urgent need for defining the “how”—how to deliver efficacious interventions and how to achieve programmatic effectiveness. This session highlights recent data, future direction for implementation science research, and provides analysis of illustrative implementation science studies. It offers an overview of how to assess the effectiveness of interventions aimed at overcoming barriers to improve health outcomes and how to enhance the delivery of HIV prevention, care and treatment and related health services. The session is directed towards clinicians and staff engaged in HIV programme, programme managers, and researchers interested in implementation science. At the completion of the session, participants will understand key implementation science concepts, why such research is needed and the design principles of implementation science studies. They will also comprehend the specific challenges of implementation science research.
