CHRP Disparities Initiative: UCSF CFAR Conference Award

Investigator: Paul Volberding, MD
Sponsor: California HIV/AIDS Research Program

Location(s): United States


The California HIV/AIDS Research Program fosters outstanding and innovative research that responds to the needs of all people of California, especially those who are under-served, by accelerating progress in prevention, education, care, treatment, and a cure for HIV/AIDS. The Dispairities initiative envisions creating Disparities Cores and projects at each of the UC Centers for AIDS Research to focus on eliminating HIV/AIDS health disparities in California. Also envisioned are methodologies to identify and test high-risk persons of color unaware of their HIV status and link them to HIV/AIDS services as necessary. Supporting the UCSF CFAR Conference is one step in acieving this goal.
