In the last decade, the HIV prevention field has witnessed a distinct shift, with emphasis on biomedical strategies to supplement behavioral interventions. One of these approaches is the use of preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP), co-formulated antiretroviral medications taken to reduce the risk of HIV infection.
To maximize its prevention potential, the public health impact of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) requires an approach that will lead to: 1) large-scale adoption among eligible populations and 2) identification of current gaps among prescribers.
The Veggie Van study is a research evaluation of mobile markets to determine if they can increase access to healthy food and is designed to help understand the best strategies for running mobile produce markets. The Veggie Van Study team works with partner organizations in several states to start or expand mobile produce market programs and evaluate their impact on lower-income and underserved communities.
