Welcome to the Behavioral and Social Sciences Website!

Behavioral and social sciences (BSS) have made important contributions to HIV research since the beginning of the epidemic. The most important way to integrate BSS into HIV clinical trials is to include multidisciplinary behavioral and social scientists on the research concept and protocol teams from the earliest stages. The US National Institutes of Health (NIH) embraces the above and promotes this topic.

Currently the website is under construction, and only the Materials page has content - our brochures and other key documents. Please check back frequently for new pages and materials. We will continue to update the website in the coming months to include resources on community and stakeholder engagement, as well as other topics in HIV Biomedical Clinical Trials Research.
