Speculations on Quasi-Experimental Design in HIV/AIDS Prevention Research

  • Donald T. Campbell (Lehigh University)
  • Beatrice J. Krauss (City University of New York)


This paper provides a speculative discussion on what quasi-experimental designs might be useful in various aspects of HIV/AIDS research. The first author’s expertise is in research design, not HIV, while the second author has been active in HIV prevention research. It is hoped that it may help the HIV/AIDS research community in discovering and inventing an expanded range of possibilities for valid causal inference.

Keywords: HIV, prevention, research design, quasi-experimental
