Focused on Innovation and Breakthrough Science

Partnering to Support Women and Girls

Women and girls are among the most vulnerable in the world to HIV infection. Here’s how we’re mobilizing to help women and girls fight back.

The search for a vaccine to prevent HIV has been a 30-year quest. For over a decade, we have focused on delivering breakthrough science to stop the transmission of infection—a critical goal if we are to end this epidemic.

We remain dedicated to fulfill our mission of delivering transformational innovations to meet the diverse needs of the HIV community and are excited to be bringing forward an evolved therapy with darunavir as its backbone.

Non-adherence to treatment remains a challenge for many people living with HIV and one of the main drivers of resistance to HIV medicines. Our hope is to make HIV treatment manageable for all by developing innovative solutions like long-acting regimens.
