Are you interested in developing a new community research collaboration, but don’t know where to start? The Ending the HIV Epidemic Scientific Working Group (EHE SWG) and Community Collaboration Board will host a forum tailored to CFAR faculty and community members interested in developing new HIV research collaborations. Three community-academic pairs with current partnerships will discuss:

  • How they were introduced and identified common interests
  • Methods they use to communicate
  • Financial, logistical, and other support for their collaboration
  • Progress and outcomes from their partnership

Tips on applying for CFAR Community Collaborative Awards and Community Mini-Awards that can support new partnerships will also be presented.
