Within the Division, the Center for Mental Health Research on AIDS (CMHRA) is a fully integrated program supporting studies that range from the molecular and cellular basis of HIV/AIDS CNS infection to the domestic and international dissemination of effective preventative interventions. The program is grounded in a public health model that seeks the rapid translation of data from biological, behavioral, and epidemiological studies into interventions designed to prevent new HIV infections and limit morbidity and mortality among those infected. Using behavioral approaches effective in the HIV/AIDS arena, the Division also supports research on comorbidity between mental illness and general medical illness and translates basic behavioral and social science research into the study of stigma, health disparities, treatment adherence, and behavioral change factors influencing the onset and course of mental illness.
