Project Direct

Grantee Organization: The Practice-Based Research Network of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

Term: September 2014- August 2016 

Project DIRECT aimed to closely examine local public health systems in California and Alabama for variation in STD service provision. Specifically, we examined variation in the differentiation, integration, and concentration of STD prevention, screening and treatment services as the local level in these two states. Quality of community and agency-level STD services, key outcome measures, and facilitator and barriers to implementing evidence-based STD interventions are all key features examined.
