The Collaborative HIV Prevention Research in Minority Communities Program was developed to address the simultaneous overrepresentation of communities of color among those with HIV and under-representation of researchers of color at the National Institutes of Health. The program is designed to help scientists develop their programs of research and obtain significant research funding.
The 27-month program has the following elements:
- Small grant funding
- Structured summer program
- Individualized long-term research collaboration
- Access to behavioral science expertise
- Internal peer review of all products
