i-Base is a community project that bases the resources and information we produce on the results from clinical research – which can range from isolated case reports to large randomised studies.
We also produce materials to support community involvement in research. HIV research has developed through the involvement of many interest groups, and the best research includes HIV-positive people and their advocates working with researchers.
