Evaluating Sex Behaviors and Substance Use in Pregnant Women in South Africa: Informing Interventions to Prevent HIV Acquisition and Transmission

Dr. Dvora Joseph Davey came to UCLA to present on her work in South Africa in a special guest lecture titled “Evaluating Sex Behaviors and Substance Use in Pregnant Women in South Africa: Informing Interventions to Prevent HIV Acquisition and Transmission.” With over 30 attendees in the audience ranging from well-versed researchers and faculty to postdoctoral students to undergraduate students, Dr. Joseph Davey gave a thorough overview of not only the current state of HIV risk and transmission in South Africa but also the studies that are currently in place, working to understand the institutions that affect these factors and aiming to find more effective ways to prevent transmission.

She highlighted three studies, the STIP – STI study in pregnancy in Tshwane and Cape Town, SexPP – a mixed methods study on the sex behavior of pregnant/postpartum women, and PrEP-PP – a study on PrEP in pregnant and postpartum women.
