(From the CFAR Adelante RFA:

As confirmed by the National Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. (EHE) Initiative, there has been a
dearth of culturally responsive research specific to the needs and concerns of Hispanic and/or Latina/x/o
people even as these populations in the United States continue to bear a disproportionate burden of the
HIV/AIDS epidemic.

Adelante — which means forward or onward in Spanish — is funded by the NIH to help respond to that

Through the CFAR Adelante Program, the NIH-funded Centers for AIDS Research (CFARs) are working
to advance HIV research in Latina/x/o communities by providing mentored development to early-career
investigators whose research focuses on decreasing HIV-related health disparities among Hispanic

The CFAR Adelante Program is funded by the NIH/NIMHD and administered through two NIH-funded
CFARs: District of Columbia and Emory University. Collectively, the DC and Emory CFARs provide oversight for three-member Adelante Teams who conduct two-year mentored community-based research projects that focus on reducing HIV health
disparities among Hispanic and/or Latina/x/o populations.
