- New York City Consortium
- State University of New York at Brooklyn
- Metropolitan Washington, D.C. Consortium

In 2013, the Los Angeles/Southern California Consortium closed and four new clinical sites from the southern United States were added.

Since 1997, the WIHS Data Management and Analysis Center (WDMAC) has been located at the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, Maryland.
