What's New In Research?
PEPFAR has partnered with The Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC), South Africa to produce What's New in Research? - a monthly newsletter that will alert readers to new scientific publications. The newsletter focuses on relevant, evidence-based applied science about children affected by HIV and AIDS, policy research, tests of effectiveness, rigorous program evaluation, and cost analysis.
What's New in Research? is an effort to make existing research more visible and accessible, and to encourage further research activities in the field of Orphans and Vulnerable Children.
