Governments of India, Netherlands and Sweden launched first-of-its-kind collaborative research programme on HIV/AIDS. It is aimed at harnessing complementary research strengths and diverse expertise across three nations to catalyze development of better tools to understand and address burgeoning global epidemic of HIV.
The collaborative research programme will focus on accessing relevant populations of research interest, and leveraging next-generation technologies and advanced predictive analytics to better understand geographic diversity and different clades of HIV/AIDS virus. It will also focus on divergent human immune responses based on genetic, immunological and behavioural determinants. This information will be key in developing new and improved tools for treatment, prevention and possible cure for HIV in near future.
