Closing scientific gaps

We address major scientific knowledge gaps in the HIV response

To address critical scientific knowledge gaps in the HIV response, the IAS runs three programmes: Towards an HIV Cure, the Global HIV Vaccine Enterprise, and the Collaborative Initiative for Paediatric HIV Education and Research (CIPHER).

These programmes convene experts, including community representatives, to identify promising areas of research and discuss innovative methodologies. They also build on their networks of leading scientists and activists to advocate for adequate research funding and offer intensive research training for scientists in low-resource settings to help decolonize global health and ensure continuing research capacity for HIV vaccines, cure and paediatric HIV.

The IAS promotes the use of non-stigmatizing, people-first language. The translations are all automated in the interest of making our content as widely accessible as possible. Regretfully, they may not always adhere to the people-first language of the original version.
