Proposed Project

    Clinic Context Matters Study-New-National Center for HIV/AIDS, 
Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease 
Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The daily use of specific antiretroviral medications by persons 
without HIV infection, but at high risk of sexual or injection exposure 
to HIV, has been shown to be a safe and effective HIV prevention 
method. The Food and Drug Administration approved the use of 
Truvada[supreg] for preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in July 2012 and CDC 
has issued Public Health Service clinical practice guidelines for its 
use. Because approximately 50,000 new HIV infections continue to occur 
each year, with rates of HIV infection increasing most rapidly for 
young MSM and because severe disparities in HIV infection continue 
among African-American men and women, incorporation of PrEP into HIV 
prevention is important. However, as a prevention tool in very early 
stages of introduction and use, there is much we need to learn about 
how to implement PrEP in a real-world setting.
    CDC is requesting OMB approval to collect data over a 3-year period 
that will be used to conduct research among clinicians about their 
knowledge, attitudes, and practices related to a new intervention 
(PrEP) over the period of its initial introduction in their clinics. 
The knowledge gained will be used to refine measurement instruments and 
methods (for example, identify modifications to questions in the 
current surveys that are unclear to participants), develop training and 
educational resources and tools for use by CDC/DHAP (Division of HIV/
AIDS Prevention)-funded partners, and other organizations supporting 
delivery of PrEP in clinical settings.
    The project will be conducted in clinics in each of four cities 
(Houston, Newark, Chicago, and Philadelphia) where PrEP has recently 
become available through a local community health center.
    Once per year for 3 years, CDC will conduct an online survey of 
clinicians at participating clinics to collect data on the demographics 
of the respondents and their knowledge, attitudes, practices, and 
organizational factors related to PrEP and its delivery in their 
clinics. Surveys will be administered through an online survey Web 
site.
    There are no costs to respondents other than their time.
