Refining the HIV Research Enterprise

New opportunities for innovation and discovery in HIV research are within our grasp. Over the next 3 years, the National Institutes of Health will refine its science-driven HIV research enterprise to deliver the innovative, efficient results needed to turn the corner on the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

Every 7 years, NIH competitively renews its funding of the HIV clinical research networks operating in the United States and internationally. NIH is taking a proactive approach to refining the research enterprise and driving HIV discovery. By establishing a forward-looking agenda to guide this process, NIH will determine the focus and priorities of its HIV clinical trial networks through 2027.   Learn more with resources available on this site.
