Project Description

The Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS (CIRA) at Yale University collaborates with the institutions in St. Petersburg to support research training that focuses on HIV prevention and covers a wide range of public health-related disciplines including biology, medicine, sociology, and psychology. The Yale AITRP seeks to continue building an MPH program at St Petersburg State University, a collaborative effort begun in 2002 and led by the Yale AITRP, as a critical step in preparing a new generation of Russian leaders who will spearhead local, regional and national efforts for the protection and improvement of public health.
