WRI Reports


visual description

The Women’s Research Initiative on HIV/AIDS (WRI), a program established by The Well Project in 2003, is a multidisciplinary and multisectoral effort dedicated to identifying gaps for women in HIV prevention, treatment, and cure research and policy. Every year, the WRI convenes a meeting to address a specific topic area, bringing together WRI members and attendees who represent the broad range of fields engaged in this work, including clinical care, HIV research, academia, advocacy, policy, government, the pharmaceutical industry, and women living with HIV. Below are reports for each of our meetings. For more background on each of the WRI annual meetings including participants, please click here.
