WOMEN'S HEALTH INTERVENTIONS AND TRANSITIONS (WHIT)
Our research group focuses on global women’s health from a behavioral and social perspective. Our research considers women’s experiences across the lifecourse, with particular emphasis on adolescence/young adulthood and pregnancy/postpartum, to understand how changes in motivations and behaviors impact health across time and during key life transitions.
We are particularly interested in HIV treatment and prevention, patient-provider communication, reproductive health and fertility decisions, women’s empowerment and resilience, mental health, social determinants of health, and poverty. The long-term goal of our research group is to improve global health disparities in women’s health through culturally relevant and context sensitive interventions.
