Operating Grant: HIV/AIDS and STBBI Community-Based Research

The CIHR HIV/AIDS Community-Based Research (CBR) Program is one of four research funding areas of the CIHR HIV/AIDS Research Initiative. The CIHR HIV/AIDS Research Initiative is responsible for the research components of the major Government of Canada initiative in HIV/AIDS, namely the Federal Initiative to Address HIV/AIDS in Canada (FI).

The CIHR HIV/AIDS CBR Program supports the partnered work of Community Leaders and Researchers in knowledge development and capacity-building initiatives of relevance to communities engaged in the fight against HIV/AIDS. The CIHR HIV/AIDS CBR Program encourages incorporation of other STBBI into the research framework, but will fund projects for which HIV/AIDS remain the main focus. All opportunities offered through the CBR Program are available in two distinct funding pools: Indigenous and General.
