Two Universities Work to Battle HIV/AIDS in South Africa

brownBrown University has formed a new partnership with the University of Cape Town in South Africa to train the next generation of social scientists who will confront the HIV/AIDS epidemic in southern Africa. About one in six adults in South Africa is living with HIV.

Faculty from the public health schools at each university will train social scientists on HIV risk and response, antiretroviral therapy, and prevention strategies.

The partnership is funded by a five-year, $1.9 million grant from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.
