Underrepresented Populations Committee

The ACTG Underrepresented Populations Committee (UPC) promotes and monitors the participation in ACTG trials of minorities who traditionally have been underrepresented in clinical research. It also recommends policies and procedures to the ACTG Executive Committee to improve the representation of underserved populations in the group’s studies and to enhance the participation of minority investigators within the ACTG. The committee oversees the ACTG Minority HIV Investigator Mentoring Program (MHIMP).
