While significant gains have been made in diagnosis, linkage to care, and antiretroviral treatment, much work remains to be done in the scale-up of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and to achieve 90-90-90 targets for people living with HIV. Electronic health (eHealth), mobile health (mHealth), and related digital technologies (“eHealth”) have potential to facilitate these goals by increasing accessibility, scale, and productivity of HIV prevention and care. The eHealth Scientific Working Group (SWG) will promote multidisciplinary collaborations and provide coordination between CFAR investigators currently working independently in these areas.


  • eHealth Symposium (annual) which will feature a keynote speaker in this field
  • eHealth Training Workshops (3 per year) to provide didactic training and hands-on experience in survey design and development and other uses of technology for HIV research
  • eHealth Work-in-Progress Meetings (bi-monthly) to support new multidisciplinary collaborations among traditional HIV researchers and scientists outside of HIV research
  • eHealth Landscape Review Meetings (bi-monthly) to conduct and disseminate reviews of high-priority eHealth technologies used in HIV research and provide eHealth toolkits for use by the CFAR community
  • Matching funds for Trainee Support Grants in the eHealth field of research
