Today, the lack of public awareness about clinical research trials is one of the greatest challenges to recruiting volunteers for these potentially life-saving studies. In response, NIH has launched the “Clinical Research Trials and You” website as a resource for volunteers, health care providers, and voluntary advocacy groups to learn the basics about clinical research and to find out about ongoing studies in their area.
The Office of HIV/AIDS Network Coordination (HANC) works with the HIV/AIDS clinical trials networks of the U.S. National Institutes of Health with the intent of creating a more integrated, collaborative, and flexible research structure. The networks are an affiliated group of national and international medical research institutions and investigators that conduct clinical HIV/AIDS research to develop safe and effective drugs, prevention strategies, and vaccines.
