The HIV/AIDS Clinical Trials Network (ACTG, HVTN, HPTN, IMPAACT, and MTN), DAIDS, and HANC subscriptions to the CITI Program will expire May 31, 2021. After this date, learners will no longer have access to CITI Program courses through their network, DAIDS, or HANC affiliation. These subscriptions will not be renewed beyond May 31, 2021 due to changes in the CITI Program’s pricing structure. This change will not affect access to CITI Program courses through affiliations with other organizations outside of the networks, DAIDS, and HANC, i.e. some universities. Learners who no longer have access to the CITI Program after June 1, 2021 have several options to complete GCP and HSP Training.
We want to share a message of gratitude to research staff and community as we begin the new funding cycle for the HIV/AIDS clinical trials networks from Dr. Carl Dieffenbach, Director, Division of AIDS, NIAID.
Welcome! The HANC team is excited to launch the newly redesigned Office of HIV/AIDS Network Coordination (HANC) website. Located at the same address, hanc.info, the new HANC website is crafted to be easier to navigate, mobile-friendly, and modernized in design.
The DAIDS is excited to launch the Site Clinical Operations and Research Essentials (SCORE) Manual. The SCORE Manual is a new site-facing resource which consolidates DAIDS operational and procedural requirements to support the implementation of DAIDS-sponsored clinical research within the DAIDS Clinical Trials Networks. The manual serves as a reference describing DAIDS requirements and may be used as a resource for current site staff as well as for on-boarding new research personnel.
The DAIDS Learning Portal is also updated with new and revised trainings to improve adherence to and understanding of DAIDS policies and procedures, and current ICH GCP guidelines.
The Office for Policy in Clinical Research Operations (OPCRO), DAIDS is pleased to announce the availability of the new Electronic Information Systems Policy.
