The Alcohol Research Center on HIV (ARCH) is a multidisciplinary program project grant focused on reducing the impact of alcohol on the breadth and depth of the HIV epidemic.  Funded by NIAAA in September of 2010, the ARCH comprises 3 major research components in addition to an Administrative Core and a Research Methods Core. 

Given multiple pathways through which alcohol impacts HIV morbidity, mortality and transmission, the Brown University ARCH provides an integrated, multifaceted, interdisciplinary approach to forward science on alcohol/HIV interactions and inform clinical approaches to caring for people living with HIV and efforts to prevent HIV transmission.
