To accomplish our overarching goal to reduce the heavy burden of HIV-associated HCC in sub-Saharan Africa, the H2U Consortium proposes the following Specific Aims:
- To enhance Ugandan investigator capacity for conducting high-level, collaborative, multidisciplinary scientific investigation of HIV-associated HCC.
- To solidify the clinical, population and translational research infrastructure for the study of HIV-associated HCC in Uganda.
- To advance the foundational understanding of the epidemiology, mechanisms, and clinical spectrum of HIV-associated HCC.
- To inform prevention and treatment strategies applicable to HIV-associated HCC occurring in Uganda and similar resource-limited settings.
