HIV

Our work encompasses most aspects of HIV-related work.

Our comprehensive approach to fighting HIV is informed by innovative research ranging from testing multi-purpose prevention technologies, exploring structural drivers, to improving approaches to care and treatment through health systems strengthening, optimising treatment, and developing appropriate models of care for key populations and marginalised groups.
