WACh Priority Areas in Focus: HIV Through the Lifecycle

Today we introduce our Scientific Priority Area of HIV through the Lifecycle.

Our center has cultivated expertise in HIV/AIDS since its inception, and our focus has always been on the intersection of three key populations: women, children and adolescents. While AIDS-related deaths are decreasing in children and adults, they are increasing in adolescents, which is why strategies for prevention and treatment of adolescents is a major focus of our priority area. By focusing on interventions during critical life stages for pregnant women, infants, and adolescents, we can prevent HIV from persisting throughout the duration of a person’s life and into the next generation.

This is how we will transform HIV testing and treatment approaches and achieve an AIDS free generation.

This is HIV Through the Lifecycle.
