People living with HIV have long been targeted for medical care, but they have not always been viewed as actors in the process. A new study co-authored by UCSF Bixby researchers shows that people living with HIV in Kenya and Uganda are vital in helping to guide community members toward HIV treatment.
A group of UCSF Bixby Center and University of Chicago researchers has conducted the first known nationally representative survey of women aged 18-45 to gauge their understanding and preferences regarding reproductive healthcare restrictions at religiously affiliated hospitals.
Proponents of cutting public funding to Planned Parenthood and other reproductive health providers often argue that other clinics can step in.
