Legacy Project Working Group

Contact:  Russell Campbell

The Legacy Project Work Group (LPWG) is comprised of members from HANC, Community Partners, network operations centers, clinical research site representatives, DAIDS, Office of AIDS Research and other NIH Institutes and Centers. The LPWG ensures that the HANC Legacy Project assist the DAIDS-funded HIV clinical trials networks to achieve increased inclusion of African-Americans, Latinos and Native Americans in HIV prevention and therapeutic research. Setting program objectives and monitoring progress toward those objectives are the fundamental tasks of this group. The LPWG works with the HANC staff to establish an annual strategic plan with objectives that are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound. See the current Legacy Project Work Plan and Guidelines​ for more information.


Women's HIV Research Collaborative (WHRC)

Contact: Brian Minalga

The Women’s HIV Research Collaborative (WHRC), a working group of the Legacy Project, provides culturally appropriate guidance and leadership in development, implementation and dissemination of information about HIV research focused on and responsive to the needs of women and girls in the United States. The WHRC works to raise the visibility of issues related to HIV in women in the U.S. and promotes awareness of scientific research to women in disproportionately impacted communities. The WHRC focuses on advocating for HIV research with women living in the United States, but operates with a comprehensive awareness of the potential for women in America to benefit from HIV research that is being conducted internationally. To that end, WHRC’s focus is domestic, but its interests are both global and optimistic. See the current WHRC Work Plan and Guidelines ​​for more information.
