The UEM Partnership for Research in Implementation Science in Mozambique (PRISM) program supports a partnership between VIGH and University Eduardo Mondlane (UEM) in Mozambique to build upon the successes of the first five year grant and continues to build research capacity and conduct HIV-focused implementation science research at UEM.

The program is beginning to achieve a critical mass of investigators and will continue to train the next generation of Mozambican researchers, said Troy Moon, MD, MPH, associate professor of Pediatrics at VUMC, who leads PRISM and directs several other HIV-related grants in Mozambique. Mohsin Sidat, MD, MSc, PhD, former Dean of the Faculty of Medicine at University Eduardo Mondlane co-directs the program and serves as director of the newly created UEM Implementation Science Unit.
