International Research Programs

The HIV/AIDS Division at San Francisco General Hospital is globally engaged in research and education around the world. We have established partnerships that lead work to address the most pressing issues of the HIV epidemic in resource limited settings. We are committed and actively training the next generation of HIV researchers from countries most affected by HIV. Ongoing projects span from understanding disease pathogenesis to epidemiology to treatment to models of care delivery. We co-direct the Makerere University –UCSF research collaboration which has enrolled over 20,000 patients on clinical studies evaluating HIV, TB, malaria, and nutrition. The SEARCH (Sustainable East Africa Research on Community Health) Collaboration is evaluating the health, education and economic outcomes of novel community based interventions in a “test and treat” approach that includes HIV as well as non-communicable diseases such as hypertension.

Members of our division are active as advisors to the World Health Organization, the STOP TB partnership, and UNAIDS. We are supported by the NIH, CDC, PEPFAR and collaborate with the World Bank in our global programs.
