Collaborations * INSIGHT


INSIGHT (International Network for Strategic Initiatives in Global HIV Trials) is one of six HIV/AIDS clinical trials networks funded in 2006 by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, a component of the National Institutes of Health. Currently, INSIGHT is conducting studies in 36 countries worldwide.


INSIGHT consists of four international coordinating centres (ICCs) - CHIP is one of them.

The ultimate vision of INSIGHT is: “Reducing the global burden of HIV and other infectious diseases”. INSIGHT is in a position to respond rapidly to the challenges that endemic and emerging infectious diseases present through its globally-located investigators and its diverse sites that are poised to conduct research and quickly disseminate evidence-based clinical management strategies. INSIGHT’s mission is to: “To define optimal strategies for the management of HIV and other infectious diseases through a global clinical research network.”

INSIGHT is organised with an Executive Committee, primarily responsible for securing network funding that enhances and sustains the efficient and effective organization. The daily business is maintained through the Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) and the Operational Steering Committee (OSC). Jens Lundgren is chairing the SSC, with responsibility for ensuring outstanding research productivity within the INSIGHT network and identification and development of new research projects aligned with the INSIGHT mission. The OSC is responsible for oversight of protocol teams; maintaining quality and performance and developing cross network procedures. Jesper Grarup is deputy chair of the OSC.
