The goals of the CAB are to:

  • Provide an open forum to discuss community concerns and needs.
  • Work with staff to review new study protocols and provide feedback on research efforts.
  • Ensure AccessHealth MA works with all populations and assists in expanding access to the best available treatments and promote enrollment in clinical research studies.
  • Maximize the dissemination of culturally and linguistically appropriate information about treatment options to consumers and providers in all communities.
  • Develop, foster, and facilitate ongoing dialogue with all communities affected by HIV.
