PHACS take creative approaches to creating spaces for empowerment and education.
PHACS runs two study-wide Community Advisory Boards (CABs), one for adults and one for young adult study participants. Health education initiatives are driven by study participants, caregivers, and PHACS study staff across the US. We focus on issues that communities identify as important and on the solutions they identify as relevant.
Some of the key issues that PHACS addresses include HIV disclosure, HIV stigma reduction, peer support, healthy transition to adulthood, medication adherence, new media and patient outreach, and learning the results of PHACS studies.
