Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) SWG

Goals

The goals of the EHE SWG are to catalyze the development of high-impact implementation science initiatives that will contribute to bringing an end to the HIV epidemic. 

Aims:

  1. To catalyze the development of high-impact implementation science initiatives that will contribute to bringing an end to the HIV epidemic in local, regional and national “hotspots”
  2. To support innovative science for the four pillars of the national EHE initiative - diagnose, treat, prevent and respond
  3. To engage early stage, women and underrepresented minority investigators in implementation science and the EHE initiative.
