*Nothing About Us Without Us: Community Engagement in Research to End the

This *TAGline
is all about the importance of community engagement in research to end the
epidemics of HIV, HCV, and TB. As this edition’s cover shows, protestors at
the “Storm the NIH” demonstration and die-in in May 1990 demanded political
will and funding for research, and equitable access to treatment for HIV.
This bold and knowledgeable action brought about a massive increase to
investment in HIV research, and extensive changes to how AIDS clinical
trials were conducted.

This and other actions of ACT UP, TAG, and other HIV activists have proved
how important it is to meaningfully involve affected communities in each
step of the planning and conduct of the research itself. They showed that
their goal of “nothing about us without us” could be a reality. TAG’s work
continues to perpetuate progress towards this end every single day.
