Uganda-Rakai Health Sciences Program: HIV Epidemiology & Implementation Science in Uganda
The Rakai Health Sciences Program (RHSP) is a large and well established organization focused on HIV-related research and service delivery in south-central Uganda (www.rhsp.org). We have several implementation science and applied epidemiology studies focused on HIV care and prevention which would benefit from student involvement. Some examples include (i) improving HIV care and prevention service delivery in a very high HIV prevalence fishing community using an mHealth-supported, motivational interviewing-informed community health worker approach; (ii) analyses of HIV service delivery and patient-oriented outcomes; and (iii) novel uses of mHealth to collect behavioral data and deliver real-time interventions.
