In the GCH Lab, we create, implement, and act on interdisciplinary behavioral science that broadens our understanding of the context of illness and well-being in silenced global communities – with an emphasis on persons living with HIV/ AIDS. In 2018-19, we will focus on the following projects.

  • Sustained reconciliation between survivor and perpetrators of the 1994 genocide against Tutsis possible? A time-series evaluation of a peace-livelihood intervention in Kigali, Rwanda
  • Generational transmission of outgroup attitudes among children of survivors and perpetrators of the 1994 Genocide Against the Tutsi
  • Dual gender/HIV stigma and depletion of cognitive resources among transgender females living with HIV in Delhi, India
  • Determinants of guardian willingness to utilize accessible mental health services for children and adolescents living in Ibadan, Nigeria. In partnership with the University of Ibadan, Centre for Child and Adolescent Mental Health (C-CAMH)
  • Courtesy stigma among Nigerian caregivers of family members with mental health challenges: A multi-national study in Nigeria, Canada, and the US.
