MacDonnel Thai Collaboration Seeks to Innovate HIV Prevention

Karen MacDonnel

Associate Professor Karen MacDonell, along with scholars Bo Wang, and Nittaya Phanuphak are co-leading multiple NIH-funded projects focused on HIV prevention in vulnerable groups of young adults in Bangkok, Thailand. Recently, U.S. investigators worked with the Thai team at IHRI and were able to tour multiple clinical partner sites in the Bangkok area. If successful, this collaboration will result in mobile, technology-based intervention tools that IHRI and other clinical partner sites can offer to young adult patients to manage their health and reduce the risk of HIV.
