Many community-based organizations and health departments want to implement HIV prevention interventions with scientifically demonstrated effectiveness. The Replicating Effective Programs (REP) project supported researchers in developing intervention packages designed to help prevention partners replicate effective programs in their settings. Intervention packages convey the intervention's foundation, components, and methods and are one part of a larger system needed to transfer research-based HIV prevention technology to service providers. Implementation packages were developed using a multistage process. The original researchers drafted the materials, advisory groups reviewed the packages, and adopting agencies used the materials in trial runs. The advisory groups and adopting agencies recommended extensive use of examples, thorough explanations about the rationale for each intervention component, explicit representation of people of color in the materials, clear statements about the intended audience(s), and an easy-to-use and visually appealing format. Packages were revised based on these recommendations and the outcomes of the trial runs.
