This Month's Feature


Westat supports research and capacity building to prevent, diagnose, and treat HIV infection and AIDS.

HIV: Finding Therapies for Women, Youth, and Babies

Identifying safe and effective ways to prevent HIV transmission to infants and understanding the effect of HIV prophylaxis and AIDS therapies on pregnant women and their children is paramount. Westat has supported clinical research in the United States, Africa, Latin America, and India to provide some answers.

Strengthening HIV Lab/Quality Management Programs in Sub-Saharan Africa

As more African countries are participating in major HIV/AIDS prevention and care initiatives, there is a need for strengthening laboratories and building laboratory networks. Westat, in collaboration with Cheikh Anta Diop University and others, will implement a plan to improve the quality of laboratories in sub-Saharan Africa and support laboratory efforts toward international accreditation.

Providing Clinical Research Support Services for HIV Studies

No safe and effective cure for HIV currently exists, but scientists are working hard to find one. Westat provides a broad range of clinical research support services in this effort to Division of AIDS-supported clinical research entities that are of relevance to HIV and other infectious diseases and at-risk populations globally.
