US Honors Women's Role in Research

The AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG) Network would like to acknowledge all of the women and girls who are infected or affected by HIV every day, but especially March 10, National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day in the United States. The ACTG is committed to including women in its clinical trials at every point in the process from development to enrollment to reporting results that include sex comparisons. We appreciate your courage and commitment to continuing this important research so that we can further understand how HIV/AIDS uniquely impacts women and girls.
