Baltimore has been the epicenter of the HIV epidemic for several decades, and scientists at the SRC have a unique opportunity to study the prevention and treatment parameters of the short and long-term course of the epidemic. Currently, investigators at the SRC are focusing on the development and implementation of evidence based prevention programs among urban American Indians and African Americans. Utilizing a community based participatory research model as the foundation for these studies, scientists at the SRC are developing and testing new strategies and models for the prevention of substance abuse, HIV/AIDS, and hepatitis.
