Background and Brief Description The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention requests approval for a 3year clearance to collect data using rapid qualitative inquiries to understand issues related to HIV prevention, care, and treatment in the United States. Rapid inquiries are concentrated data collection and iterative data analytic efforts focused on timely and relevant responses to urgent issues and research questions. Although we will collect the majority of data using qualitative methods, many studies covered under this generic information collection, will involve a mixed methods approach for data collection. The rapid inquiries will include multiple well-established qualitative methodologies, which may include but not be limited to in-depth individual interviews, focus groups, direct observations, case studies, document reviews, or brief quantitative surveys assessing demographics, behaviors, attitudes, intentions, beliefs, or other attributes of the respondents. In some assessments, additional contextual information may be collected, such as information about the respondents’ community, workplaces, or organizations and places where they interact. CDC expects to qualitative data from approximately 1,800 respondents, assuming three research studies per year with each research study collecting data from 200 respondents.

In-depth interviews, focus groups or other data collections are expected to take an average 45 minutes for healthcare providers and 60 minutes (1 hour) for general respondents to complete.

efforts are expected to provide insight regarding a wide array of HIV-
related programs designed for various populations throughout the United 
States, including but not limited to: Persons living with HIV/AIDS 
(PLWH); persons at elevated risk for acquiring new HIV infection or 
transmitting existing HIV infection to others; clinicians or other HIV 
care providers; men who have sex with men (MSM); transgender persons; 
injection and non-injection drug users; incarcerated populations or ex-
prisoners; commercial sex workers; male and female heterosexual groups 
at high risk for HIV infection; and other providers and organizations 
(e.g., health departments, community-based organizations, public and 
private health clinics, advocacy groups, community groups, or other 
governmental and nongovernmental organizations) serving or otherwise 
interacting with persons at greatest need for HIV prevention, care, and 
treatment.

population and research design of each information collection submitted 
under this generic information collection. Partner organizations such 
as public and private health clinics and community-based organizations 
that serve the target populations in the respective geographic 
locations may be contacted for their assistance in recruitment of 
potential respondents. Respondents may be identified and selected as 
key informants and invited to participate by contractor staff members.
