JOLs platforms provide gateway to Southern HIV/AIDS research – part 1: knowledge and education

On World AIDS Day, Andy Nobes takes a look at some recent research into HIV/AIDS from Southern researchers

Today is World AIDS Day. HIV/AIDS is a pressing issue for many of the countries in which INASP works. It is also a significant focus for research in these countries. This post and the next three posts share a selection of research from the past year on the topic from the Journals Online (JOLs) platforms. This first post looks at some research in the area of public knowledge and education about HIV and AIDS.

(Some articles on the AJOL platform may not be open access. However, researchers in the developing world can register for free access on the AJOL website).
