The Vanderbilt Institute for Global Health has 3 NIH grants to work with the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (China CDC) and the local CDC offices in Beijing and Chaoyang (eastern side of the city) to increase HIV testing, linkage to care, and adherence to antiretroviral therapy among men who have sex with men (MSM) in Beijing. They are also initiating a new study to see if male circumcision is effective at reducing HIV risk among MSM in Beijing and other global sites.
Drs. Sten Vermund and Han-Zhu Qian will discuss the HIV epidemic in China, challenges for MSM, and the nature of their research objectives and activities.
