Innovative Research at AHP

Innovative Research at AHP

The Alliance Health Project conducts research to generate more effective and efficient HIV prevention, service, and care and insights into lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) mental health and wellness. Supported by the National Institute of Mental Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we share study results with the global research community and use them to improve intervention techniques within the agency. We also recognize the opportunity we have to reach out and offer our clients the opportunity to participate in research studies and benefit from state-of-the-art interventions.
