Dr. DiClemente’s research has three foci: (1) developing interventions to reduce the risk of HIV/STD among vulnerable adolescents and young adult women; (2) developing interventions to enhance vaccine uptake among high-risk adolescents and women, such as the HPV vaccine; and (3) developing implementation science interventions to improve the uptake, adoption, and sustainability of HIV/STD prevention programs in the community.  He has developed 10 CDC-defined evidence-based interventions for vulnerable adolescents, young women, and men that CDC, SAMSHA, HHS have disseminated, domestically and globally.
