Our last little baby, (participant number 403) in our PreNAPS study in northern Uganda has been born– hurray hurray! Many thanks to the whole NAPS team, and especially Barnabas Natamba. They have been working hard to implement manage this big and important study. The follow-up study, PostNAPS, is slated to finish in January 2015.
Our evaluation of the nutritional effects of the Food by Prescription program in Nyanza Province, Kenya, has just been published. This is important because limited data exist to guide food programs targeted to persons living with HIV/AIDS in terms of identifying individuals with the greatest potential to benefit, appropriate enrollment criteria, optimal duration, and appropriate exit criteria. Congrats to Jason Nagata and team!
I am so pleased that the first quantitative examination of infant feeding practices in the context of HIV has been published in Maternal and Child Health Journal. Much gratitude to my colleagues at UCSF and in Uganda for their efforts to make this happen.
