STRIVE Research Consortium 2011-19: Final Dissemination

STRIVE: Final dissemination

The STRIVE research consortium and Professor Peter Piot (Director of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine) invite you to join us to discuss what we have learned over eight years of research into the structural drivers of HIV. Along with consortium members from India, South Africa and Tanzania, you will be joining policy makers, programme teams, civil society advocates and researchers, as we review:

  • What has STRIVE learned about alcohol, gender inequality, social norms, intimate partner violence and stigma – and what works to tackle them? 
  • What are the implications for policy, practice and research? 
  • And how can trigger broader multidimensional benefits for adolescent girls and young women, and for a range of Sustainable Development Goals?"
