Greetings from the ICHAD and SMART Africa Teams!
ICHAD and our affiliates are celebrating four new research grants, totaling over $5 million in funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). These studies use innovative approaches to improve HIV treatment and mental health, refugee mental health, and substance use prevention. Read about each project below. In addition, we kicked off the new season of the ICHAD Speaker Series with a talk presented by Dr. Leyla Karimli titled, Economic strengthening interventions among female caregivers in Sub-Saharan Africa: underlying mechanisms of its effects. If you missed it, you can view the recording on the link in the sidebar under ICHAD Speaker Series. And each fall, we welcome new student research assistants who are integral to supporting and enhancing the work of our productive research teams. We warmly welcome Solomon, Lawrence, and Peter!
Looking ahead, we are eagerly anticipating our October speaker, Dr. John Naslund (see details in the sidebar). And in November, we are looking forward to opening applications for the LEAD Global Training Program and Researcher Resilience Training Program.
