In this symposium, you will hear from experts on why and how the experiences of PLHIV can inform care delivery and identify needs of drug discovery; learn how current and future antiretroviral therapies can address these needs.

Translating Research Evidence into Action: CIPHER Grant Programme in the Asia Pacific Region

Through its Grant Programme, the IAS Collaborative Initiative for Paediatric HIV Education and Research (CIPHER) provides seed funding to early-stage investigators to address critical research gaps, while providing a unique opportunity for professional development. A key aim of the programme is to build research capacity within resource-limited settings by fostering the next generation of investigators in paediatric and adolescent HIV. CIPHER is hosting this evidence to action forum with the ambition to increase implementers’ and country level policy makers’ engagement in ongoing research as well as to faster translation of evidence into tangible actions. This symposium will be an opportunity to meet CIPHER Grantees based in the Asia Pacific region and learn more on their research while also discussing the barriers and challenges faced by early-stage investigators to receive research grants and develop professionally.
