Student Research on HIV Disclosure Rates in Ethiopia

December 27, 2012

Ayalu Reda, a graduate student in sociology, is the lead author on a paper recently published in AIDS Care about HIV disclosure rates in Ethiopia, where more than 1.2 million people are thought to be HIV-positive. Reda's research reveals that many HIV-positive patients do not disclose their status to their spouse, siblings, or sometimes to anyone and often travel far distances to receive treatment.
