Project Description

The overarching goal of the Emory-Nigeria HIV Research Training Program (EN-RTP) is to enhance the capacity and the quality of researchers focused on HIV health issues relevant to women in Nigeria. To accomplish this, we will leverage existing collaborations between Emory University and three partnering Nigerian institutions to enhance human resource capacity enrichment with long-, medium-, and short-term research training of Nigerian investigators, facilitating their acquisition of the skills needed to pursue research careers focused on women’s health and HIV/AIDS.
