International Collaborative to Address Research Priorities in HIV and Rehabilitation
The Canada-International HIV and Rehabilitation Research Collaborative (CIHRRC) was originally established in 2009 as a partnership among researchers, clinicians, community members and organizations in Canada and the United Kingdom (UK), originally referred to as the Canada-UK HIV and Rehabilitation Research collaborative (CUHRRC). Since inception, the Collaborative has expanded to include members from the United States, Ireland, and other countries whereby individuals living with HIV experience similar types of issues related to disability and rehabilitation.
CIHRRC is based on the belief that forming partnerships and exchanging knowledge among countries with individuals experiencing similar types of disability related to HIV is an important step in bridging widespread clinical knowledge with a strong research foundation on HIV and rehabilitation.
With direction from the CIHRRC Steering Committee, the CIHRRC membership will pursue a variety of research initiatives that address research priorities in HIV and rehabilitation originally identified by realize (formerly CWGHR) and updated by members of realize and CIHRRC at the International Forum on HIV and Rehabilitation Research in June 2013.
