Centre for the Aids Programme of Research in South Africa

The main goal of CAPRISA is to undertake globally relevant and locally responsive research that contributes to understanding HIV pathogenesis, prevention and epidemiology as well as the links between Tuberculosis and AIDS care. CAPRISA was created in 2001 and formally established in 2002 under the NIH-funded Comprehensive International Programme of Research on AIDS (CIPRA) by five partner institutions: UKZN, University of Cape Town, University of Western Cape, National Institute for Communicable Diseases, and Columbia University in New York.

CAPRISA, which has made numerous breakthroughs in HIV and AIDS research, is also a designated UNAIDS Collaborating Centre for HIV Prevention Research.
