2022 Community HIV Cure Research Workshop - February 8 and March 1, 2022

The 2022 Community HIV Cure Research Workshop, sponsored by Treatment Action Group (TAG), many of the Martin Delaney Collaboratory Community Advisory Boards, and other advocacy groups, will be virtual again this year, breaking up into two 2 hour sessions—one before the 2022 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI 2022) on February 8; and one session afterwards on March 1.

THE TOPICS

This year we'll be having discussions about the ethical issues brought up by the research towards a cure for HIV that will be accessible to everyone who needs it, and soliciting community input on terms and analogies being used by scientists working in the HIV cure field.

We will hear from a panel of black transgender women, who will share their concerns about the lack of involvement and representation of transgender women in HIV cure-related research and their views on ways we advocate for this to change.

You will have a chance to ask questions directly to the scientists who have identified the Esperanza Patient, the second person to have spontaneously or naturally been cured of their HIV; who are conducting cure-related trials using broadly neutralizing antibodies; and who are concerned about the lack of cure-related research available to people living with HIV in low- and middle-income countries.

And you will get some of the first reports on the important science presented at CROI 2022 related to curing HIV, given by renowned researchers who attended this year's conference.
