South Africa HIV partnership funded

South Africa has the largest HIV-positive population in the world, with 6.2 million people β€” nearly one in six adults β€” living with the virus.

The public health schools at Brown University and the University of Cape Town have launched a new research and training partnership to create β€œthe next generation of HIV social science in South Africa.” The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development is funding the collaboration with a new $1.9-million, five-year grant.
