CPC Fellow Speizer Receives Funding to Study Partner Violence Among Youth in Sub-Saharan Africa

Oct 17, 2007

Ilene S. Speizer, CPC Fellow, has been awarded funding for the research project "Partner Violence Norms and HIV Risk Taking Among Youth in Sub-Saharan Africa." This study uses data from more than 15 recent African Demographic and Health Surveys to examine the association between partner violence norms and HIV risk and preventive behaviors of youth in Sub-Saharan Africa. Findings from this research may be useful in developing strategies to reduce youth violence risk and, ultimately, to strengthen HIV prevention programs for youth. This project is funded by National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, a branch of the National Institutes of Health, through July 2009. Speizer is also a Research Associate Professor in the Department of Maternal and Child Health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
