Training workshops are at the heart of CAHR’s mission to promote education and the development of new researchers. That is why in the Summer/Fall of 2016, CAHR consulted with a wide range of stakeholders to assist in the development of a strong curriculum for its workshop series moving forward. CAHR members, the HIV/AIDS research community, national AIDS service organizations (ASOs), regional networks, people living with HIV/AIDS, participants of the annual CAHR research conferences, funders, and CAHR Board members were all invited to provide input that will guide the development of future CAHR’s training efforts. The results of these consultations are outlined in this report which describes the specific challenges and gaps in an HIV researcher’s career path, as well as other needs that were identified during the consultation process.
CAHR's MISSION IS TO:
- Promote excellence in HIV research
- Foster collaboration and cooperation among HIV research communities, including basic science, clinical science, epidemiology & public health and social science
- Promote education and the development of new researchers
- Provide a unified voice for Canadian HIV researchers and engage diverse stakeholders (community, industry, Government, NGO’s etc.) in ongoing dialogue and knowledge exchange to ensure that HIV research remains responsive to their needs
