About HIV360

Globally, HIV remains an important infectious disease that continues to have adverse impact on millions of people. Recent estimates show that over 36 million people are living with the virus worldwide; most of them in the sub-Saharan Africa region. Although the global HIV incidence and mortality have declined in the last decade and a half, every year people living with HIV increase by about 2 million. As we march toward reaching the 90:90:90 targets by 2020 and 2030, momentous efforts from researchers, scientists, practitioners, and lay are needed.

 HIV360 is one of hm2r’s call for partnership aimed at synergizing, and mentoring the next generation of public health leaders to with HIV prevention and management competencies. This is motivated by the fact the HIV remains an important infectious disease that continues to have adverse impact on millions of people. Further, there is acknowledgement of unmet need for mentoring in various aspects of the disease.  This group thus address Research, Practice, and mentoring issues covering all dimensions of HIV.

Working closely with national and international institutions, the HIV360 Research Group will conduct high quality basic research, clinical research, social, and behavioural research as well as ethical and policy analysis.  Lateral mentoring and more importantly mentoring the next generation of leaders is embedded in all of these activities.   Details here
