iHASEInstitute of HIV/AIDS Surveillance & Epidemiology


Overview and Vision
Background, Rationale and Statement of the Issues:
  • Many Public Health and Community Health agencies that serve communities adversely impacted by the global HIV pandemic and many other public health threats have limited access to trained Epidemiologists with expertise needed to:
    • Assess community needs including disease surveillance/assessment of disease burden/risk and early detection, prevention and control of infectious disease outbreaks; 
    • Analyze and use surveillance and other Epidemiologic data to support planning of response plans to meet changing demands for service;
    • Conduct intervention Epidemiology research to develop and pilot public health interventions, and evaluate outcomes thereof;
  • Applied public health Epidemiologic research to elucidate and solve public health problems is currently too limited in quantity and quality as Public Health/Community Health agencies have limited capacity to meet the need;
  • Broader quality assurance and continuing education through openly accessible publication of peer-reviewed applied Epidemiology work is too limited in quantity and quality;
  • The public health workforce, and public health and medical professions students are not as well prepared in applied Public Health Epidemiology as they could or should be to meet the needs of communities; 
Goals:
In collaboration with CHASE-CAE, the global Council on HIV/AIDS Surveillance & Epidemiology (CHASE) in the College of Applied Epidemiology (CAE), the Institute of HIV/AIDS Surveillance & Epidemiology (iHASE) aims to coordinate the establishment of a network of iHASE Collaboration Centers/Groups/Units through which academic Public Health (&/or Medical) institutions can collaborate with Public Health/Community Health agencies to provide applied HIV Epidemiology support for sustainable HIV prevention and care program planning, development, implementation, outcome evaluation and training/capacity development. In summary, this applied HIV Epidemiology capacity development initiative will respond to the issues outlined above in the background and rationale through balancing four key concepts consistent with shared objectives of public health agencies [including affiliates of the UNAIDS/International Partnership Against AIDS (IPAA)]:
  • Provide applied HIV Epidemiology support for prevention and care to the host public health agency;
  • Train and create a core group of public health practitioners with applied HIV Epidemiology skills;
  • Provide quality assurance and continuing education through openly accessible publication of peer-reviewed work;
  • Strengthen capacity in applied HIV epidemiology across public health agencies and institutions;
Mechanism:
To help develop and provide sustainable HIV prevention and care service capacity, iHASE-affiliated/iHASE-accredited Collaboration Centers/Groups/Units function as the public health agency service and academic training collaboration mechanism. Through this collaboration mechanism, public health agencies gain access to trained HIV Epidemiologists through an on-the-job/in-service applied HIV Epidemiology fellowship/training program for recent/prospective graduates in public health/primary care. Under the guidance of experienced academic and applied HIV Epidemiologist preceptors, fellows/on-the-job trainees will provide a service to state/provincial, district, city or local public health or community health agencies; in turn, fellows/trainees will also receive state-of-the-art in-service/on-the-job training on supporting prevention and care program planning, disease burden/risk assessment, public health surveillance, and intervention Epidemiology research support for  intervention/program development, implementation and outcome evaluation. Through this academic-public health agency collaboration, iHASE Collaboration Centers/Groups/Units offer a high quality service supported by on-the-job applied HIV Epidemiology training experience which includes fellowship programs, short courses, seminars and a peer-reviewed scientific journal to provide continuing education and assure the quality and rigor of ongoing Epidemiology support for prevention and care. The institute's applied Epidemiology programs are expected to stimulate public health scholars' interest in evidence-based prevention and care service delivery and prepare fellows for long-term applied HIV epidemiology career placements in public health/community health agencies serving adversely impacted communities.
