Mission and Values
The mission of the Pediatric HIV/AIDS Cohort Study (PHACS) is to conduct impactful science with integrity and rigor that improves care for and promotes health equity among children, young adults, women, and families affected by HIV. We work inclusively and collaboratively, valuing the diversity of expertise among researchers, staff, and participants. Our research is driven by the evolving science of HIV prevention, treatment, and cure and the priorities of our participants. We commit to promoting social and racial justice in our network and through our research.
