PPAH reviews applications that employ epidemiologic, population-based and health services research approaches to understand HIV incidence and prevalence; structural, macro-level, or policy factors affecting HIV infection, transmission, and management; and the delivery of health services to prevent infection and care for those living with HIV/AIDS.

The List of Reviewers lists all present, whether permanent or temporary, to provide the full scope of expertise present on that date. Lists are posted 30 days before the meeting and are tentative, pending any last minute changes.
