JOLs platforms provide gateway to Southern HIV/AIDS research – part 3: research

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 recent research 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. The second post looked at research into the broader health implications of HIV/AIDS, the complications and the effectiveness of different approaches to treatment. This post looks at a range of research into the disease, its prevalence and potential treatment.
