Adolescent & Young Adult SWG

Mission Statement

The mission of the JHU CFAR’s Adolescent and Young Adult SWG is to promote interdisciplinary research collaborations across the intersecting domains of adolescent and young adult (AYA) health and HIV.

Our goals are to:

  1. Have broad impact in conceptualizing & developing innovative approaches to address critical scientific gaps for adolescent and young adults aged 13-25 years old who are living with, affected by, or at risk for HIV in domestic & international settings
  2. Build interdisciplinary bridges across Johns Hopkins institutions to foster collaborative scholarship & mentorship to junior investigators at JHU
  3. Promote translation of research-informed policies & practices impacting AYA populations by fostering partnerships with policy makers and practitioners
