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.

Conditional Economic Incentives to Improve HIV Prevention and Treatment Outcomes

​March 25, 2019 @ 12PM PST

What are economic incentives? Do conditional economic incentives work? Economic incentives (often money and/or gift cards) are used to motivate behavioral change. They can be powerful tools when conducting research. Please join the Behavioral Science Working Group and Dr. Omar Galarraga on March 25, 2019 for a webinar exploring this topicRegister here.
