Project Description

To prevent HIV infections and avert most or all preventable deaths from HIV, HIV interventions, which have been proven to work in randomized controlled trials, need to be implemented in real-life health systems, at large scale and organized to continue over many decades. In Tanzania, large gaps in implementing HIV interventions remain, and to make substantial further progress toward an "AIDS-free generation" scientific research is required to identify optimal delivery models and to establish the population health impact of HIV interventions in different local contexts.

Through post- and pre-doctoral fellowships, intensive short courses, and scientific symposia, this training program—a joint initiative by the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) in Boston and Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences (MUHAS) in Dar es Salaam—aims to train a critical mass of senior and junior researchers to carry out successful research in HIV Implementation Science, Impact Evaluation, and Health Systems Research in Tanzania.
