Strategic planning committee

The 15-member strategic planning committee makes proposals concerning overall planning by the ANRS, in terms of its actions, budget, and management, and all questions relating to the running of the agency.

Scientific committee

The scientific committee comprises 14 leading scientists and an associate member from patient and other groups. The committee advises on the scientific strategy of the ANRS and all its actions, engages in prospective deliberation, and reviews work progress.

Sector committees

The sector committees review funding applications submitted during the annual call for proposals.

  • CSS 1    Host-virus interactions in HIV infection
  • CSS 2    Structural biology and molecular genetics of HIV
  • CSS 3    Clinical and pathophysiological research in HIV infection
  • CSS 4    Basic research in viral hepatitis
  • CSS 5    Public health, human sciences, and social research
  • CSS 6    Research in resource-limited countries
  • CSS 7    Clinical research in viral hepatitis
Coordinated actions

Coordinated actions are the agency’s spearhead in driving research, each in a specific area. These actions are undertaken and concluded as a function of the scientific priorities of the ANRS. In other words, they are designed to:

  • Mobilize teams and researchers already involved, or not, in HIV or viral hepatitis research
  • Help with the design, review, and writing up of research projects


  • AC 5      Clinical trials in HIV infection
  • AC 7      Cohorts
  • AC 11    HIV, antiretrovirals, biotechnological innovations
  • AC 12    Research in resource-limited countries
  • AC 18    Research in prevention of HIV/AIDS
  • AC 23    Dynamics of HIV, HCV, and HBV epidemics
  • AC 24    Clinical trials in viral hepatitis
  • AC 25    Public health research in hepatitis
  • AC 27    Health economics research
  • AC 29    Mechanisms of hepatitis virus entry and assembly
  • AC 31    Dendritic cells, innate immunity, antigen presentation
  • AC 32    Viral reservoirs: formation and control
  • AC 33    Virology of hepatitis and biotechnological innovations
  • AC 34    HBV Cure program
Working groups

The working groups take part in driving research and drawing up proposals in emerging and prioritized areas of research that lack mature scientific deliberation and need restructuring in order to constitute a coordinated action.
