Overview

Dr. Holtgrave's research has focused on the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of a variety of HIV prevention and care interventions (including the provision of housing as a structural HIV/AIDS intervention), and the relationship of the findings of these studies to HIV prevention policy making. He has served on an Institute of Medicine panel charged with recommending methods to improve the public financing and delivery of HIV care in the United States. He has also previously served as the Director of the Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention -- Intervention Research & Support at the US Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In addition, Dr. Holtgrave has investigated the relationship between social capital measures, infectious disease rates, and risk behavior prevalence. He has worked extensively on HIV prevention community planning, and has served as a member of the Wisconsin HIV Prevention Community Planning group.  He is currently a member and Vice-Chair of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS (PACHA).

Dr. Holtgrave has also participated in economic evaluations of interventions designed to reduce smoking behaviors. 

Besides serving as Professor and Department Chair, he co-directors the Center for Implementation Research in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
