Understanding Personal, Social and Community Effects of Biomedical HIV Prevention

Back to search results

The last decade hastransformed thepractices of HIV prevention. Sustained HIV treatment ('treatment as prevention') and taking antiretroviral drugs prophylactically ('pre-exposure prophylaxis') have both been shown to be highly effective in preventing HIV transmission, and are endorsed internationally and increasingly promoted in many countries. Biomedical prevention disrupts the ways in which people conceptualiserisk and practise safe sex, gives rise to new identities andpractices, and affect the ways in which communities respond effectively to HIV. We are seeking students who will examine these issues in depth, using qualitative methods (such as interviewing, participant observation or media analysis).
