Associate Name: Karen Alexander

Funding Source/Period of the Grant: HPC Pilot 10/1/2017-8/31/2018


The project uses an integrated approach to reducing two formidable public health risks occurring at high rates among women experiencing intimate partner violence (IPV) – unintended pregnancies and HIV diagnosis. The project aims to examine factors that influence acceptability of long-acting reversible contraception (LARCs) and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) as an integrated approach to reducing risks of unintended pregnancy and HIV in this highly vulnerable population of women.
