Title: Contraceptive use among HIV-infected women and men receiving antiretroviral therapy in Lusaka, Zambia: a cross-sectional survey. 

Project Objectives:  The specific aims of the study are to assess different aspects of male involvement in PMTCT at the community level and determine potential correlations with vertical HIV transmission and HIV-free survival. We hypothesize that measures such as male involvement in PMTCT will be associated with reduced vertical HIV transmission and higher HIV-free survival among infants.

NIH Support: Fogarty fellowship postdoctoral training award
