Project Description

This project will build capacity to address evidence-based interventions related to an injecting drug user (IDU)-mediated HIV epidemic in Kazakhstan through research training at Asfendiyarov Kazakh National Medical University (KNMU) in Almaty. The project aims to strengthen in-country expertise in identifying processes to integrate people who inject drugs into HIV care in the era of COVID. The training program is designed to bolster research capacity focused on the intersection of substance use disorder and the HIV treatment cascade ultimately reducing both HIV incidence and HIV morbidity and mortality.

This award received a grant supplement from the NIH Office of AIDS Research through NIMH to support behavioral social sciences research training.
