The HANC Mission

The Office of HIV/AIDS Network Coordination (HANC) works with the HIV/AIDS clinical trials networks funded by the Division of AIDS (DAIDS) 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 HIV vaccines. They include the AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG), the HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN), the HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN), the International Maternal Pediatric Adolescent AIDS Clinical Trials group (IMPAACT), and the Microbicide Trials Network (MTN).

HANC is based at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington and has provided leadership and logistical support for cross-network coordination efforts since 2004. HANC’s mission is to support the science and operations of the networks by increasing efficiency and resource-sharing through coordination of critical activities across networks and with other research and advocacy partners. Efforts focus on: scientific leadership; site management and clinical trials logistics; behavioral science; communications; laboratory operations; the Legacy Project; training development and dissemination; harmonization of data management; development and application of consistent standards of performance evaluation; and facilitating effective community engagement in the research process. HANC is accountable in its activities to DAIDS and Network Leadership.
