AIRN is an active member and partner of the national CIHR Centre for Research Evidence into Action for Community Health (REACH) in HIV/AIDS and the CIHR Community-Based Research Collaborative: A Program of REACH. REACH was originally established in 2009 by an initiative of the Canadian Institutes for Health Research to respond to the critical need for more broadly conceptualized, collaborative, and interdisciplinary research in HIV/AIDS. AIRN has had a formal partnership agreement with REACH since 2011. This partnership includes the funding of AIRN’s staff position to the end of 2022.
