Brown School faculty receive NIH award to improve adherence to medication for families with HIV-positive youth

The National Institute of Child Health and Development, part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), has awarded $3.4 million to three Brown School faculty members to test the long-term impact of an intervention that has shown early success in improving adherence to medication through economic support for families with HIV-positive youth.

Led by Fred Ssewamala, the William E. Gordon Distinguished Professor at Washington University in St. Louis, the study will extend the original 2012-18 research in southwest Uganda. Research assistant professors Ozge Sensoy Bahar and Proscovia Nabunya are also principal investigators in the study. Learn more on the Brown School site.
