Promoting PrEP Use for Women: Lessons Learned from Uganda, South Africa, and Alabama

This is a past event.

Dr. Lynn Matthews is an infectious disease trained clinician-scientist funded by NIMH and NICHD since 2011 to develop and test interventions that reduce HIV in the context of sexual and reproductive health for men and women in Uganda and South Africa. She has worked in South Africa and Uganda since 2007 and 2010, respectively. She started as an Associate Professor at UAB in 2019, and since has expanded the scope of her research to address PrEP for Black adolescent girls and young women, HIV testing, and SARS-CoV2 in Alabama.
