As a key part of its mission, CAHR promotes the education and development of the next generation of HIV researchers. In addition to the direct support of students (Master’s and Doctoral Research Awards) CAHR conducts an increasing number of training workshops which focus on the needs of all four CAHR research tracks (Basic Sciences, Clinical Sciences, Epidemiology and Public Health, Social Sciences), with a new focus on Community-Based Research. CAHR is also working to develop on-line tools and information products that support the needs of young researchers.
