2BeatHIV is a five-year NIH-supported project that focuses on examining research related to social and ethical aspects of an HIV cure. We ran a series of crowdsourcing competitions to try to get the best way to promote community involvement in HIV cures based on CBO. Community involvement is a very important factor in the HIV cure process because of the stigma associated with HIV and the mistrust and miscommunication between community members and doctors. Our group retreat uses social networking, celebrity support, face-to-face events and collaboration with the CBO to promote our competitions and encourage the development of relevant research on HIV cures. The winner of each competition is selected by a panel of experts. The first competition, "What does an HIV cure mean to you?" will influence our subsequent activities. The results of this competition will be discussed at the International AIDS Society Symposium in Durban, South Africa. The winning team of the second crowdsourcing competition, Pitch Perfect, has designed an app, 'Aware', dedicated to alerting consumers to research on HIV cures, HIV defences and treatments. The team is now working with experts to design a trial version. Click on 2BeatHIV.org for more details.
