  • Advance the development and assessment of novel interventions for HIV prevention, treatment, and cure.
  • Optimize public health impact of HIV discoveries through translation, dissemination, and implementation of research findings. 
  • Build research workforce and infrastructure capacity to enhance sustainability of HIV scientific discovery.

Respondents are invited to propose research priorities within each goal and provide additional feedback on the new framework.
