Operations Research Collaboration for Alcohol Abuse and AIDS: ORCAAA
Funded by: National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism
Project dates: September 2012 - August 2018
Principal Investigator: Braithwaite, R. Scott

Consortiums for HIV/AIDS and Alcohol-Related Research Translation (CHAART) are involved in many research projects aiming to improve HIV/AIDS treatment among individuals affected by alcohol use, and to prevent the transmission of HIV within the U.S. and international populations. The purpose of this project was to develop an Implementation Science Resource Core to support the research efforts of several CHAART consortia, building upon existing infrastructure within these consortia. The project enhanced the CHAART’s directions and goals, and accelerated the progress of ongoing and future investigations by giving consortia access to resources, information, ideas, and expertise in Implementation Science that were otherwise beyond the scope of any single research team.
