HIV/AIDS Research Initiative
The CIHR HIV/AIDS Research Initiative is managed by the CIHR Institute of Infection and Immunity (III) under the leadership of Dr. Marc Ouellette.
The CIHR HIV/AIDS Research Initiative is responsible for the management and oversight of the research components of the two major Government of Canada initiatives in HIV/AIDS, namely the Federal Initiative to Address HIV/AIDS in Canada and the Canadian HIV Vaccine Initiative. These initiatives provide $22.5M annually to support researchers and trainees through the five research funding streams of the CIHR HIV/AIDS Research Initiative:
- Biomedical and clinical
- Health services and population health
- Community-Based Research
- CIHR Canadian HIV Trials Network
- Canadian HIV Vaccine Initiative
The CIHR HIV/AIDS Research Initiative is guided by the CIHR HIV/AIDS Research Advisory Committee (CHARAC), which is comprised of members representing multiple CIHR Institutes, various areas of HIV/AIDS research, government, and HIV/AIDS community organizations.
