World HIV Day RTI Presentation: Voices from the Field

The most critical aspect to the success of any research project is a strong on-the-ground team. This World HIV Day, we heard from researchers across three different sections of RTI’s Global Public Health Impact Center on their global HIV prevention and treatment projects, including projects in South Africa, South Sudan, Zimbabwe, and the United States. Each presentation consisted of unique HIV-focused projects and their impact, and testimonials from project staff working to conduct the studies in the field. Presenters also shared their teams’ views and experiences fielding the projects during COVID-19.
