Members of the WRI serve a three-year term and are chosen based on their expertise and knowledge. Our members include HIV/AIDS thoughtleaders in clinical care, HIV research, academia, advocacy, policy, government, the pharmaceutical industry, and women living with HIV. All WRI members donate their time and expertise to this initiative without compensation. As part of their membership, they commit to taking what they’ve learned at the annual meetings back to their institutions, thereby exponentially expanding the reach of the information shared and created at these meetings.
