Durham Herald-Sun announces new South Africa project led by CPC Fellow Pettifor

Sep 9, 2009

Audrey Pettifor, faculty fellow at the Carolina Population Center, has begun work on a new project in South Africa that will evaluate whether paying girls to attend school will reduce their risk of infection with HIV.

The Herald-Sun (Durham) published an announcement about this new project which is called Effects of Cash Transfer and Community Mobilization in Young South African Women (see abstract about the project here.)

"UNC gets $2.7M for HIV study," (The Herald-Sun, September 7, 2009)

An excerpt from the story:
"UNC has been awarded a $2.7 million grant from the National Institute of Mental Health to study if monetary incentives and community mobilization can help prevent young South African women from becoming infected with HIV. Audrey Pettifor, an assistant professor of epidemiology at UNC's Gillings School of Global Public Health, is the study's principal investigator and a faculty fellow at the Carolina Population Center, where the study is based."
