Overview

An AIDS free generation is within reach with ‘super-fast-track targets’ developed to accelerate prevention and treatment of HIV among infants and children and contribute to ending AIDS by 2030. To achieve these targets, evidence is needed to inform global policy change and ensure better outcomes for infants and children across the HIV cascade.

The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Collaborative Initiative for Paediatric HIV Education and Research (CIPHER) of the International AIDS Society (IAS) have undertaken a global research prioritization process. Through broad engagement with stakeholders, a global research agenda has been established, which is aimed at guiding research efforts and maximizing available resources. The agenda is comprised of priority research themes in the areas of testing, treatment, and service delivery for informing global policy change, and improving outcomes for infants and children living with and affected by HIV.
