Harvard AIDS Initiative
The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health AIDS Initiative(HAI) is dedicated to research and education to end the AIDS epidemic in Africa and developing countries. Since 1988, HAI has been at the forefront of HIV/AIDS laboratory research, clinical trials, education, and leadership.
AIDS Prevention Initiative
In November 2000, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation awarded the Harvard School of Public Health with $25 million to create the AIDS Prevention Initiative in Nigeria (APIN). In partnership with government agencies, universities, and nongovernmental organizations in Nigeria, APIN strives to reduce the rate of growth of Nigeria’s HIV epidemic—and ultimately reverse its course.
