Opportunity to Participate in a Survey on HIV Cure Research

The Gillings School of Global Public Health at UNC and Project Inform would like to find out what people living with HIV in the United States who might one day decide to join a study think about HIV cure research, including their willingness to participate in HIV cure studies. By HIV cure studies, we mean those that involve collecting blood or tissue or even trying new types of drugs and therapies as a first step towards a cure.
