The Role of The Social Sciences in HIV Research


HIV/AIDS remains a major public health concern. Although effective HIV treatment is now available, an HIV diagnosis can affect identity, thinking, and patterns of action.

In this lecture, Professor Rusi Jaspal will explore case studies concerning both HIV prevention efforts and the experience of HIV diagnosis among various groups in society. The lecture will also consider the difficulties social scientists face in researching HIV, such as the conflicting findings around key behavioural issues that can create challenges in formulating robust policy. This event is in collaboration with the Festival of Social Science,
