VIGH researchers receive grant to study family-focused approach to prevent mother-to-child HIV transmission

Researchers at the Vanderbilt Institute for Global Health (VIGH) recently received a two-year, $895,072 grant from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study whether an integrated, family-focused approach can prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV—the AIDS virus—in Nigeria.

New grant extends HIV/AIDS efforts in Mozambique

Vanderbilt University has recently received a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for more than $7 million to extend HIV/AIDS training, treatment and care in the rural province of Zambézia in Mozambique. The grant, entitled "Avante Zambézia," Portuguese for "Move Forward Zambézia,"  will continue HIV/AIDS efforts from 2007 initiated with funding from a prior CDC grant. The President's Emergency Plan for AID Relief (PEPFAR) funded both grants.
