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.
