Catherine Koss: Uptake of and adherence to PrEP in East Africa

Catherine Koss, MD is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of HIV, Infectious Diseases, and Global Medicine at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. Dr. Koss conducts clinical research on HIV prevention and treatment, with a major focus on developing strategies to optimize uptake of and adherence to pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) among women in the United States and East Africa. She also has an interest in adherence to treatment and virologic outcomes among pregnant and postpartum women living with HIV. 

The  Young Investigators’ Conference (YIC) in International Research began as a forum for junior investigators (fellows and faculty) to discuss research that they conduct in international settings.  The topics for discussion are meant to be driven by the needs of the researcher.  Each YIC will be assigned to a junior investigator, rather than a specific topic. Senior investigators with significant experience working in international health research attend as well, to provide advice and feedback in an informal, small group setting. Because unpublished research is discussed, the conference does not allow remote access, and may decide to limit participation. Feel free to reach out to the organizer if you'd ike to attend.
