May 10, 2023

Rutgers has received a $3 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to conduct a four-year study to explore the legal and ethical barriers to conducting HIV research with youth populations in central, east, west and southern Africa.

The goal of researchers from the Rutgers Institute for Health, Health Care Policy and Aging Research (IFH) is to identify challenges to conducting research and develop strategies for overcoming these barriers to HIV research.

Co-investigators involved in the study include Donald Hoover, Nir Eyal and Mark Budolfson of IFH; Richard Marlink of Rutgers Global Health Institute; and Francis Barchi of Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy and IFH. Other collaborators include Mary Kasule of Botswana-Baylor Children’s Clinical Centre of Excellence and Charles Hounmenou of the University of Illinois at Chicago. The study’s advisory board consists of members from each of the 48 countries involved in the study.
