Within each area of coordination are numerous work groups that are integral to advancing the research goals and objectives defined by the HIV/AIDS Clinical Trials Networks and the Division of AIDS.

Behavioral & Social Science

HANC supports Community Partners, The Legacy Project, and the COVID-19 CAB coalition to achieve representation and build relationships with historically underrepresented communities in clinical research.


HANC supports cross-network working groups for network leadership, communications, data management centers, performance evaluation, and site coordinators to promote greater information sharing, collaboration, and process standardization.


HANC supports several cross-network laboratory working groups and committees with the aim of harmonizing processes and procedures, ensuring standard quality assurance for protocol-specified assays and​ laboratory preparedness for network clinical trials.
