AAHIVM/ITHC HIV Practice Award was established as an annual award in 2011, with awards given by the American Academy for HIV Medicine (AAHIVM) in 2012. Recipients are nominated for the award and an AAHIVM committee selects recipients. Some of the awards have been given for use of social media to educate at risk populations, telemedicine to expand clinical reach in urban, rural, and prison populations, and in focusing electronic health software on the needs of clinicians specializing in treating HIV positive patients. While the ITHC funds the awards, it is has no involvement in the selection process.
