Community Partners (CP) is a cross-network body charged by the Network Leadership and the Division of AIDS (DAIDS) with promoting effective representation of the many communities within which the NIH/NIAID-sponsored HIV clinical trials networks conduct research. CP conducts activities regularly through conference calls and online tools such as email and a web portal system that allows for document collaboration and discussion boards.
