The NIH CFAR program promotes establishing collaborative research between CFARs and strengthening capacity for HIV/AIDS research in low and middle-income countries. The CFAR-SSA was established in 2011 under the leadership of the UCSF-GIVI CFAR . In November 2012 the leadership was transferred to the Johns Hopkins CFAR to build upon initial accomplishments and enthusiasm.
To focus CFAR-SSA activities, two main goals are proposed to guide and evaluate its actions. These goals are a direct extension of the mission statement for the CFAR program.
