The H-TEAM Cornerstones

The H-TEAM consists of 5 cornerstones that, through a unique combination of targeted collaboration and focused interventions, could drastically reduce the number of new HIV infections. For each cornerstone, a multidisciplinary team of experts from different partner organizations independently develops and implements innovative projects to achieve the goals of that cornerstone.

PrEP: research on the implementation of PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis)
More timely and frequent testing: the earlier an HIV infection is detected, the better
Awareness raising and treatment: the H-TEAM raises awareness on HIV and the importance of early treatment
Starting treatment early: the earlier HIV treatment is started, the better
Research into "post-treatment control": research into the effect of very early treatment on HIV and the immune system
