Meeting Objectives


  1. Inspire and explore new ideas among African investigators within the network’s current focus areas:
    • TasP beyond 052 and 071
    • Synergy in STI and HIV prevention research
    • Status-neutral HIV prevention interventions in MSM and transgender women in Sub-Saharan Africa
    • Improving PrEP uptake and persistence by offering a choice of interventions and tools best suited for specific populations (e.g., AGYW, pregnant women).
    • Non-drug interventions in adolescents
    • Prevention in pregnant and lactating women
    • PrEP in substance users
  2. Strengthen collaboration and promote active involvement between HPTN leadership, site leadership, community, and staff.
  3. Elevate the quality of study conduct by facilitating the exchange of successful experiences from sites implementing pivotal HPTN trials in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).
