The Centre for the AIDS Programme of Research in South Africa (CAPRISA) is a designated UNAIDS Collaborating Centre for HIV Prevention Research. The main goal of CAPRISA is to undertake globally relevant and locally responsive research that contributes to understanding HIV pathogenesis, prevention and epidemiology as well as the links between tuberculosis and AIDS care.

CAPRISA provides a unique opportunity to network with global leaders in the field of HIV and TB to remain abreast of the latest scientific and research trends. CAPRISA was created in 2001 and formally established in 2002 under the NIH-funded Comprehensive International Program of Research on AIDS (CIPRA) by five partner institutions being the University of KwaZulu-Natal, University of Cape Town, University of Western Cape, National Institute for Communicable Diseases, and Columbia University in New York.

CAPRISA conducts research in four main Scientific Programmes namely: HIV Pathogenesis and Vaccines, HIV and TB treatment, Microbicides, and Prevention and Epidemiology. If you are seeking a career with a dynamic research organisation which provides an opportunity to conduct cutting edge research in HIV and TB prevention and treatment, we believe that CAPRISA can advance your professional development.
