Since 2016, Seble Kassaye, MD, MS, has led the Women's Interagency HIV Study (WIHS) in the Washington area, capturing critical information about the impact of HIV on women.
Through an ongoing project, researchers at Georgetown's Center for Global Health Practice and Impact (CGHPI) work with communities in Kenya, Malawi and Eswatini to link health service delivery and national policymaking.
Two HIV+ patients who have been receiving treatment at Georgetown for nearly thirty years spoke about surviving, thriving and making a difference.
