For decades, UAB CFAR has partnered with community organizations throughout Alabama as the gatekeepers to the people our research aims to serve and the leadership that facilitates research studies. We approach each partnership with the goal of building and strengthening trust and forging a relationship to stand the test of time.

CFAR Community Coalition

Led by Ms. Harriette Reed-Pickens, the Coalition aims to unite community partners and CFAR investigators for HIV research through bi-directional communication. Formed in 2022-2023, it replaces the community advisory board, fostering equitable partnerships. The objective is to support HIV-related research and engage the community through the 1917 Clinic. The mission is to build a bridge between researchers and community members, ensuring all voices are heard in the fight to End the HIV Epidemic.
