The MAC AIDS Fund Leadership Initiative: Emerging Leaders in HIV Prevention from South Africa

South Africa faces the world's most severe HIV/AIDS epidemic. This year, the HIV Center has begun breaking new ground in identifying, training, and supporting outstanding emerging leaders in HIV prevention in South Africa.

Training the Next Generation: From Postdocs to Practitioners

Training has been part of the HIV Center's mission for over 20 years. From a postdoctoral fellowship to an AIDS Education and Training Center and beyond, we are helping to cultivate the next generation of HIV researchers, practitioners, and other innovators.

Mourning the Passing of Colleagues and Friends

This year, the HIV Center marked with sadness the loss of three colleagues and friends: Allan Rosenfield, Sutherland Miller, and Michael Shernoff.
