Global health research by BSS Faculty is emerging as a signature strength in the Department of Behavioral and Social Sciences. Our expanding global health research portfolio seeks solutions for issues of urgent concern in low- and middle-income countries—such as HIV/AIDS, maternal and child health, reproductive health, mental health, substance use and addictions, and violence and victimization. We apply a range of research methodologies to examine these issues, including survey research, qualitative research, as well as clincial trials of behavior change interventions using counseling and mHealth techniques. Some of the current areas where our faculty conduct research include South Africa, Zambia, Thailand, Vietnam, India, Brazil, Ecuador, and Peru.
