Through operations research, Project SOAR will determine how best to address challenges and gaps that remain in the delivery of HIV and AIDS care and support, treatment, and prevention services. Project SOAR will produce a large, multifaceted body of high-quality evidence to guide the planning and implementation of HIV and AIDS programs and policies.
Project SOAR partners will work globally in close collaboration with in-country program implementers to:
- demonstrate how increasingly constrained resources can be used to successfully reach those most in need;
- improve the use of high-quality HIV services through the adoption of evidence-based best practices;
- address barriers to program scale-up and sustainability; contribute to updated global program implementation guidelines and revised strategic priorities;
- and strengthen in-country capacity to set agendas for and conduct operations research and apply research findings.
