How can I prepare a research title in the area of home-based care for people with HIV?

Home based care refers to care given to people with health related problems including HIV/AIDS. What I want to research in this area is the way health organizations can be integrated so that the resources available can be focused on both interventions at the same time, if these organisations can make one pool or basket such that the interventions to be implemented can be financed by that pool. Sometimes you find different organisations implementing different programs but with the aim of improving the health of an infected person. I think the best way is to integrate these organisations so that they can work together so as to bring about efficiency and effectiveness in achieving health outcomes. Also if different organisations implementing the same interventions, for example, providing ARVs to patients at their homes, family planning, etc. merge, they can have enough financial resources and even human resources that could enable implementation of these interventions in a more cost effective way.

From your question description, it seems that you haven't yet conducted the study. My advice to you would be not to think of a title at this moment. The title of your paper should be finalized at the end, after you have finished writing your manuscript.

This is the time to focus on your research question. You should first come up with a research question based on the plan you suggested above. Based on my understanding of your description, here is an example of what could be a possible research question: "How integration of various organizations providing home-based heath and nursing care services that include AIDS/HIV can achieve more efficient and cost-effective health outcomes."

Once your research and manuscript writing are complete, you will find it easier to come up with a title. Here are a few suggestions to help you write an appropriate title:

  • Write the title at the end, once you have completed writing your manuscript.
  • Ensure that the title clearly indicates what your research is about.
  • Keep it brief, informative, and attractive.
  • Include relevant descriptive keywords that readers are most likely to search for.
  • Avoid using jargon as it might make the title too complicated and difficult to understand.
