Global Health and HIV/AIDS: Cutting Edge Issues for Underserved Populations

About the Institute

This Institute will focus on current knowledge regarding global HIV/AIDS epidemiology, pathogenesis, prevention and treatment, and social context, with a special emphasis on the current debate about treatment for prevention, and a focus on under-served populations.  Particular areas of examination will be women, adolescents, prison populations, men who have sex with men and alcohol/substance use, as well as the contexts of human rights and health disparities.  The Institute will convene a distinguished faculty of leading scholars and practitioners from Brown University and beyond, and use a multidisciplinary team approach to understanding these complex issues in both resource-rich and poor contexts.
