The mission of CDUHR is to end the HIV and HCV epidemics in drug using populations and their communities by conducting transdisciplinary research and disseminating its findings to inform programmatic, policy, and grass roots initiatives at the local, state, national and global levels.
CDUHR accomplishes this mission through an infrastructure created to develop and enhance research with the following objectives:
- Contribute to knowledge about HIV and HCV epidemics;
- Develop, implement and evaluate interventions that have an impact on them;
- Disseminate findings through multiple venues to inform evidence-based practices and policies; and
- Train new researchers across scientific disciplines
CDUHR is funded by a grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse – Grant Number: P30DA011041.
