Who We Are

AIDSVu is presented by the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University in partnership with Gilead Sciences, Inc. The project is led by Patrick Sullivan, PhD, Professor of Epidemiology. Dr. Sullivan worked in HIV/AIDS surveillance for 12 years at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), including five years as a Branch Chief overseeing HIV/AIDS surveillance activities. Dr. James Curran, Dean of the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University, is the Chair of the Advisory Committee for the project.

A special thanks to Guillermo Chacon and the Latino Commission on AIDS for providing Spanish translation of AIDSVu.
