JOLs platforms provide gateway to Southern HIV/AIDS research – part 2: health studies

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 series of posts share a selection of research from the past year on the topic from the Journals Online (JOLs) platforms.

The first post looked at some research in the area of public knowledge and education about HIV and AIDS. Another area where there is considerable research is in the broader health implications of HIV/AIDS, the complications and the effectiveness of different approaches to treatment.

(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).
