Building Openness & Connectivity

Community Compass keeps the HVTN community informed about the Network’s research, site activities, and advances in the field of HIV prevention and vaccination. We encourage community members to submit news and event reports to this magazine and make this a true community sharing platform.

Latest Community Compass Issue

In this edition we explore the intersection of faith and HIV with perspectives from HVTN Core staff and Faith Ambassadors, share information about the launch of a new marketing campaign aimed at supporting phase 1 enrollment, and share news of a new program aimed at increasing the scientific leadership of HVTN investigators. We look at issues relating to HIV, COVID-19 and equity, meet new HVTN staff, and catch up with our friends at HANC.
