The mission of the HIV Research Trust is to build capacity in HIV in low and lower-middle income countries by promoting study into the prevention and treatment of HIV infection to further the knowledge of early to mid-career healthcare professionals working in resource limited settings. The long-term objective is to improve outcomes for patients and people living with HIV in these regions.
ViiV Healthcare is dedicated to improving the quality of life for individuals living with HIV/AIDS. Their medical education vision is to improve patient care for those living with HIV through furthering the knowledge, competence and performance of healthcare providers in the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients.
In alignment with the above, the HIV Research Trust is delighted to have been awarded a 3 year grant from ViiV Healthcare to support the HIV Research Trust annual scholarship programme from 2017 through to 2019. The grant will support a number of individual scholars annually.
