Author information

Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, Baltimore, MD.



Implementation of evidence-based interventions aimed at reducing and treating HIV can have a wider spread if funneled through faith-based organizations. However, there is a paucity of frameworks or process models aimed at providing the best practices to implement HIV interventions into faith-based community organizations.


Implementation framework and process model for African American faith settings.


Presented here is a systems multilevel implementation framework and implementation process model for integrating HIV interventions into faith-based organizations. We conclude with presentation of key methodological considerations and recommendations and discuss strategies for moving implementation science forward in faith-based organizations.


Because of their key role in the African American community, faith-based settings must be engaged in implementing evidence-based HIV interventions. Through use of a multilevel systems framework and process model, the methods and approaches of implementation science can be leveraged to encourage the spread of HIV interventions in the African American community.
