The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of AIDS Research (OAR) and Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) launched a joint HIV and Women Signature Program in 2023 to advance the NIH vision for women’s health – a world in which every woman, including cisgender, transgender, and gender-diverse women, receives evidence-based care, prevention, and treatment tailored to their unique needs, circumstances, and goals. The program also supports women in science careers to reach their full professional potential. An intersectional, equity-informed, data-driven approach to research on HIV and women is the cornerstone of this collaboration.
To ensure accountability to the communities we serve, the NIH ORWH and OAR seek comments and input from people with lived experience related to HIV and women, the advocacy and research communities, as well as others with an interest in research on HIV and women. The purpose of this RFI is to (1) identify gaps and priorities at the intersection of HIV and women’s health and (2) inform future programs and efforts.
To identify gaps and opportunities at the intersection of HIV and women’s health, and to inform future programmatic efforts, this Request for Information (RFI) invites women with lived experience, the advocacy and research communities, the general public, as well as others with interest in research on HIV and women to provide comments and input on (1) research gaps and high priority topics related to HIV and women; (2) opportunities to support women in HIV research careers; and (3) real-life experiences (direct or indirect) related to women’s health and HIV.
Responses are welcome from individuals and organizations and should be submitted via the RFI webform. To ensure consideration, responses must be submitted by December 31, 2023 at 11:59:59 PM ET
