Be The Generation to end the AIDS epidemic! You have the power to support biomedical HIV prevention research in your community!
Support the Cause
- Let others know you are supportive of HIV prevention research.
- Talk to friends and family about the need for HIV prevention research.
- Become involved and encourage your family and friends to participate in a research study, too.
You can also join the effort to end HIV by knowing your HIV status. HIV counseling and testing enables people with HIV to take steps to protect their own health and that of their partners. It also helps people who test negative get the information they need to avoid HIV infection. To find out how you can get tested and encourage others to know their HIV status, go to www.HIVTest.org .

Join a Community Advisory Board
A Community Advisory Board or CAB is made up of people from a community where clinical trials are taking place. CAB members give input about planned or ongoing studies and provide information about the local community to the staff at their local or regional research site. They may also help educate and prepare the community for clinical trials. A CAB helps ensure that a trial meets the needs of the community. If you are interested in joining a CAB, go to In Your Community.
