Global Community Health (GCH) Lab

We create, implement, and act on interdisciplinary behavioral science that broadens our understanding of the context of illness and well-being in global communities – with an emphasis on persons living with HIV/ AIDS. In 2019-20, 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
  • 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.

Congratulations to Christine Kindler who was awarded the Berlin Fellowship from Humanity in Action (HIA) that recognizes commitment to social justice and human rights. Christine will participate in a month of online courses instead of traveling to Germany this summer because of the COVID-19 pandemic. After completing her coursework, Kindler will use the following 11 months to initiate an action project applying what she has learned to important issues in her own community.

This is how great teams do meetings in Ibadan, DC, and the UK.
