HANC organizes focused monthly and ad hoc conference calls with the Network Principal Investigators, the Network Leadership Group (NLG), to address cross-cutting network leadership issues. The NLG provides a forum for coordination, collaboration and harmonization of cross-network activities. The NLG also provides a venue for DAIDS representatives to discuss proposed revisions or new policies and procedures.
The Network Leadership Operations Group (NLOG) is charged with implementing and advancing optimal collaborative clinical trials research activities among the NIH-sponsored HIV/AIDS clinical trials networks. NLOG calls include the participation of representatives from 18 NIH Institutes and Centers and provide a venue for cross-network as well as cross-institute information sharing and discussion. HANC solicits information from the Networks, NIH representatives and other partners to bring forward and organizes and facilitates quarterly teleconferences.
This group considers crucial operational and scientific questions to drive collaborative efforts among the networks and other research partners and oversees the coordination of common activities across the networks. The NLOG makes recommendations to NIAID and DAIDS regarding resource allocation that would improve efficiency within and across networks. The NLOG, facilitated by HANC, considers Leadership-level coordination issues and provide oversight to the overall coordination activity.
The Strategic Working Group (SWG) provides expert advice on the scientific priorities of the NIAID-funded HIV/AIDS Clinical Trials Networks. Specifically, the SWG serves as a forum for discussion, resolution, and proactive planning of critical issues; provides guidance on scientific priorities for future high resource trials, provides input about budget allocation for future funding of the networks and sites, and facilitates communication among all stakeholders relevant to the NIAID-sponsored HIV/AIDS Clinical Trials Networks. The SWG meets two to three times a year, and members include the network principal investigators, NIAID-appointed external advisors, the director of HANC, representatives from the Community Partners, and the director of DAIDS.
