IAS/MSD Prize for Operational and Implementation Research in Differentiated Service Delivery

The International AIDS Society (IAS) and Merck Sharpe & Dohme (MSD) award a co-partnered prize for the top-scoring abstracts in operational and implementation research in differentiated service delivery. The prize recognizes outstanding research that addresses key knowledge gaps and links new evidence to strategic programme priorities in differentiated service delivery. The prize (US$10,000 per recipient) is awarded to the four highest-scoring abstracts. It is funded by MSD.

Eligible candidates are presenting authors of regular and late-breaker abstracts submitted to IAS 2019, who meet the following criteria:

  • The abstract has been accepted as an oral presentation, for a poster discussion session or for the poster exhibition.
  • The research demonstrates innovation, originality, rationale and quality.
  • The abstract presents data on differentiated service delivery for HIV.

Abstract submitters do not need to apply for the prize. All abstracts that meet the criteria will be automatically considered.
