MPRC Seminar: HIV Risk Among Young Women in SSA-the Role of Cash Transfers

Speaker: Audrey Pettifor, Associate Professor, Department of Epidemiology, University of North Carolina About the Talk: Throughout sub-Saharan Africa young women are at incredibly high risk of HIV infection. Young women face multiple risk factors which increase their risk of infection. Importantly, structural factors such as poverty and lack of education increase young women's risk. Despite the importance of structural factors, to date there has been a paucity of interventions aimed at addressing them. Cash transfers provided to young women have shown promise in reducing HIV risk. {Will appear in FYI on Apr 10, 2014
