The safety of our Network members and study participants is always our top priority. The HPTN Leadership Team has been monitoring updates and recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization and numerous other health-based sources regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on the current guidance, we have committed to the following action steps:

  1. No new studies will start at this time
  2. Observational studies will be paused until further notice
  3. All screening and enrollments in ongoing studies will pause until further notice
  4. Follow-up will continue for participants currently enrolled in other HPTN studies, with guidance from protocol teams

 

The HPTN Annual Meeting will also be postponed, likely held in the Fall of 2020 or later.

We continue to monitor the situation and may adjust our plans as needed. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time of unprecedented change.
