Swiss HIV research foundation

The Swiss HIV Cohort Research Foundation supports research performed in the framework of the Swiss HIV Cohort Study (SHCS).

In 2007, an anonymous donor from Geneva bequeathed CHF 2’975’000.- to be used for AIDS research. This generous bequest led to the creation of the Swiss HIV Research Foundation, whose primary purpose is the support of research within the Swiss HIV Cohort Study.

The Foundation accepts only unrestricted donations. It funds projects that have been critically reviewed by the scientific board of the SHCS and submitted to the Board of the Foundation. These can include core projects (basic research infrastructure) and original research projects.
