The NIH Office of AIDS Research (OAR) and Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) are hosting a two-day virtual workshop to review the state of the science on HIV and women to inform the future research agenda.

Part of the HIV and Women Signature Program, the workshop will feature a diverse array of HIV-related topics of relevance to women, girls, and gender-diverse people. Session topics will cover the state of science related to HIV and women—with attention on prevention, treatment, cure, and social and structural determinants of health—and highlight interventions and challenges to advance health equity for women with, or affected by, HIV. Workshop speakers include U.S. and international researchers focused on HIV and women’s health, as well as leaders in the HIV advocacy community. View the agenda for Day 1 and Day 2.

  • Review the state of the science in HIV and women, with attention to prevention, treatment, cure, and social and structural determinants of health
  • Highlight modifiable factors, interventions, methods, and challenges to advance health equity for women with, or affected by, HIV
