HIV epidemiology among vulnerable populations in Iran

Investigator: Ali Mirzazadeh, PhD, MD, MPH

Location(s): Iran


HIV epidemiology is challenged in stigmatized populations worldwide, and that challenge is confounded in the social context of Iran, where vulnerable populations face legal as well as social barriers to revealing behaviours. Using culturally appropriate approaches, as well as sophisticated sampling tools, my research focuses on more accurate epidemiology to inform policy, focus, and expenditures in Iran and similar areas.
