Development of Sociobehavioral Sciences Research Capacity in Tanzania

Project Overview

The major goal is to build and develop critical mass of qualified sociobehavioral researchers in Tanzania capable of conducting independent clinical, epidemiological, operational, biomedical, and behavioral HIV prevention and treatment interventions.

The project has supported the training of three PhD students, three MPH students, two MPhil students, and one MMed trainee in Psychiatry. They will return to KCMC to create a Sociobehavioral Sciences Research Program.

The research conducted by these trainees will inform optimal HIV care and policy in Tanzania.
