The Black HIV Researchers Directory is a newly launched online resource where Black researchers can elevate their visibility, expertise, and desire to serve Black communities, while Black-led community organizations can easily connect with researchers to bolster their work. The Directory offers an easy and streamlined way for anyone in need of the expertise, knowledge, and cutting-edge research that can push our collective work forward and end the HIV epidemic for Black people.
The Directory is free to use and only requires a few minutes for researchers to sign up, create a profile, and get connected. The Directory offers users multiple pathways for connection and collaboration – Black researchers can connect with other Black researchers and Black-led community organizations can find researchers that align with their interests and needs. Additionally, researchers with varying backgrounds and experience can achieve visibility that can be challenging to gain with more organic opportunities.
