History

Community Expert Solutions originates from the work done as a part of the 2BeatHIV project. On December 14, 2015, 2BeatHIV launched as a research project funded by an R01 NIH NIAID grant (PIs Tucker/Rennie) and housed at UNC Chapel Hill. Dr. Allison Mathews founded the 2BeatHIV project after initial consultation from multiple community members, local businesses, and community-based organizations in Durham, NC. 2BeatHIV uses crowdsourcing to identify and develop community-sourced ideas to improve community engagement for HIV cure research. As a result, 2BeatHIV has initiated the development of several community engagement projects, including a campaign about HIV cure research, a campaign to reduce stigma associated with HIV testing, stakeholder video interviews about the challenges and opportunities for HIV cure research, and a series of HIV cure capacity building workshops with community-based organizations.
