Engaging The Community In The Fight Against HIV/AIDs

We aim to speed the development of an effective vaccine to prevent HIV and to set the standards of care for people living with HIV. It is through community engagement and clinical studies within the Division of Infectious Diseases at the Columbia University Medical Center that we hope to accomplish those goals.

We collaborate mainly with Project ACHIEVE of the New York Blood Center, the Harlem Family Center of Harlem Hospital, and the Women and Children’s Care Center at Children’s Hospital of New York-Presbyterian.

Sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, we are a part of the international networks of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN) and the AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG).
