Facilitating Collaboration Between HIV/AIDS Clinical Trials Networks

The Office of HIV/AIDS Network Coordination (HANC) works with the HIV/AIDS Clinical Trials Networks of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) with the intent of creating a more integrated, collaborative and flexible research structure. The networks are an affiliated group of national and international medical research institutions and investigators that conduct clinical HIV/AIDS research to develop safe and effective drugs, prevention strategies, and vaccines.


Annual Financial Disclosure Solicitation (Sept. 21, 2023)

September 21, 2023

We are excited to announce Convey® as our new financial disclosure collection system! HANC will be using Convey to collect all financial interest disclosures going forward. Convey, a global disclosure system developed by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), will help us centralize and streamline the data collection and review process for your Network's disclosure needs. Network investigators will receive emails from HANC and their Network(s) related to the change. The emails will provide Investigators with instructions on how to create their Convey accounts. 

Learn more about Convey and its system by watching this brief video demonstration.

Connecting People, Advancing Research

The Office of HIV/AIDS Network Coordination (HANC) programs are referred to as areas of coordination. 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 a number of trans-institute behavioral science groups composed of experts that are working to advance research and clinical trials through cross-network collaboration.


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.
