The SSRC's Eurasia Program, with generous support from the Ford Foundation over two successive grant cycles, has developed a major initiative to address HIV/AIDS in Eurasia with a focus on the Russian Federation, which has been identified as one of the "second-wave" countries confronted by the pandemic. Begun in 2007, and with assistance and guidance from a four-member Advisory Group and numerous Russian Advisors and collaborators, this project has supported the development of new social science university-level courses and case studies on HIV/AIDS. We have also offered research and training to scholars at various stages on the gender and sexuality, public health, and governance aspects of HIV/AIDS. Please click here for a full-list of initiative supported scholars, including their areas of research and project descriptions.
In the project's second phase, which began in 2010, we created research and teaching hubs that enable networking among partnering universities and their affiliates and neighbors on topics of health, gender and sexuality, and HIV/AIDS. These Hubs also serve to promote the development of academic and policy-relevant research and training on topics of health.
