Proposing a Network Behavioral Study HPTN
This page is for current and future network behavioral and social science researchers as they propose new studies, request data sets for additional analyses, apply for scholar programs, and liaise with colleagues.
Below, please find information on the steps required to propose a NIH HIV/AIDS Clinical Trials Network study. Included are links to web pages offering details on proposing a study to the various NIH networks and committees addressing behavioral and social science questions.

HPTN Network Background & Scientific Priorities:
The HPTN develops and tests the safety and efficacy of primarily non-vaccine interventions designed to prevent the acquisition and transmission of HIV. The HPTN was established in 2000, building on the work of the HIV Network for Prevention Trials (HIVNET).  The HPTN carries out its mission through a strong network of expert scientists and investigators from both international and U.S. institutions and partnered with a leadership group comprised of three U.S.-based institutions.  Through the coordination of the NIH Office of AIDS Research, other NIH institutes, such as the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and the John E. Fogarty International Center, collaborate with and support the HPTN.
The HPTN research agenda is focused primarily on the use of antiretroviral therapy for HIV prevention; treatment and prevention of sexually transmitted infections; treatment of substance abuse, particularly injection drug use; behavioral risk reduction interventions and structural interventions to reduce HIV transmission and acquisition.
HPTN studies evaluate new HIV prevention interventions and strategies in populations and geographical regions that are bearing a disproportionate burden of infection. This is intended to facilitate rapid scale-up of proven interventions and to have the greatest possible impact on the pandemic. In addition, the HPTN has refined and expanded its expertise in the development and validation of tools for the early detection of HIV infection. To maximize their quality and benefits, all HPTN studies are conducted in close partnership with the community.
