Hiv knowledge hubs

The concept's origin

at the start of the new Millennium:

Opportunities: Effective technologies for HIV prevention and treatment exist and are paired with unprecedented global commitment and funding to accelerate access to HIV services

Backup Initiative, in partnership with WHO, emerges to increase institutional capacity through regional HIV Knowledge Hubs
