When & Where
UCLA Center for HIV Identification, Prevention, and Treatment Services (CHIPTS)
The Center for HIV Identification, Prevention, and Treatment Services (CHIPTS), funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, leverages world class science to combat HIV globally, in partnership with communities, families, and individuals impacted by the pandemic. Strategies for integrating, promoting, and diffusing HIV detection, prevention, and care is our primary mission. CHIPTS is focused on the search for a better understanding of HIV disease, disseminating what we learn and using knowledge to bring about change. We see our work as fulfilling three goals. We pursue scientific discovery; we strengthen the capacity of others; and we seek to bring about positive change. These steps – Discover, Empower and Impact – also provide for our everyday approach. It is our hope that these steps can lead us toward healthier lives. One day, perhaps, they will lead to an end to the HIV epidemic.
