Research Objectives

Current language:

The National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Disease (NIAID) is interested in supporting programs that support the development of biomedical measures to improve adherence to ART, PrEP, and other HIV prevention interventions and strategies.  NIAID is also interested in supporting basic and applied research in the behavioral and social sciences to inform the development of novel interventions that enable all HIV infected individuals to achieve durable viral suppression.  With implementers, develop and pilot enhanced adherence interventions with demonstrated effectiveness.
