Bridgette Prince, HSRC, South Africa
The HSRC undertakes applied social sciences and public health research on HIV/AIDS, STIs and TB and provide experiential training to young researchers and expert consultation to government, civil society organisations and international agencies on these issues. Our research in HIV is both cutting edge and policy relevant. We conduct intervention research and programme assessments that aim to improve the lives of South Africans as well as people in the rest of Sub-Saharan Africa. This satellite session will provide good insights and presentations of the research undertaken by HSRC researchers which contributes to a reliable national, regional and international resource for evidence based research to prevent new infections and mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS, STIs and TB. In the session researchers will share insights from the field of at least 4 HIV prevention research projects conducted recently.
