HIV/HCV NoCo Program
No Co-infection (NoCo) 2019: HCV Elimination in Specific Populations and Regions with High Prevalence or Risk of HIV and HCV Infection
Through Medical Affairs, Gilead Sciences supports the research efforts of academic institutions, clinical investigators, community organizations and research networks to help inform the scientific community about barriers and facilitators of HCV elimination, including micro-elimination in people living with HIV. Targeting micro-elimination of HCV in HIV-infected or high-risk HIV-uninfected individuals is a feasible and a more proximate short-term goal and a positive step toward more global HCV elimination.
Gilead will support projects with research grants of up to $600,000 each, with an emphasis on achieving geographic distribution across the globe. Successful proposals will demonstrate clear scientific objectives, defined timelines, a comprehensive operational plan and the potential to generate data that has relevance to the medical community and policy makers. See the below downloadable Request for Proposal (RFP) document for more information.
