South Africa HIV partnership funded

South Africa has the largest HIV-positive population in the world, with 6.2 million people — nearly one in six adults — 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 “the 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.
