    The University of Zimbabwe College of Health Sciences Clinical Trial Research Centre hosted a regional conference on the 26-27th of April 2018 at the Cresta Lodge, Harare, Zimbabwe. The conference, Adherence to HIV Prevention and Treatment: Key Populations in Zimbabwe and sub-Saharan Africa, focused specifically on adolescents and young women, and served as a valuable platform for the timely dissemination of state-of-the-evidence research relevant to local and regional African HIV treatment and prevention investigators, practitioners, community stakeholders, and policy makers.

    The conference featured 28 expert speakers from Zimbabwe, South Africa, Uganda, the United Kingdom and the United States, and exceeded all expected attendance targets with 340 Zimbabwean and regional attendees from Cameroon, Kenya, South Africa, Uganda, and Zambia. Local Zimbabwean expertise was robust, with speakers and panelists featured from UNAIDS Zimbabwe, the Zimbabwe Ministry of Health and Child Welfare, the Medical Research Council of Zimbabwe, Harare Hospital, Newlands Clinic, the Organization for Public Health Interventions and Development.

    The Conference served as a forum to share specific challenges to HIV treatment and prevention and included structured networking sessions and topical working group forums designed to generate new research collaborations and devise strategies to overcome the identified challenges.

University of Zimbabwe Clinical Trials Research Centre

The University of Zimbabwe Clinical Trials Research Centre (UZ-CTRC) was established in 1994 to implement high quality science addressing HIV prevention and therapy; its aim is to control Zimbabwe’s HIV/AIDS epidemic and contribute to global policy as a center of excellence at the University of Zimbabwe Clinical Trials Research Centre (UZ-CTRC) in collaboration with University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and its partner institutions.

Over the last 25 years, the program has developed a governance structure built on principles of inclusiveness and collaboration of scientific, community, and administrative functions, coupled with efficiency and transparency in resource allocation. A wide range of research collaborations between the institutions have been developed, whereby faculty and staff work closely together in the development and execution of new innovative research. We are pushing our already effective governance structures to establish more open mechanisms for generating new research initiatives in both public and private sectors.
