Kelika Konda, PhD (Faculty Mentor) is based in Lima, Peru and her research focuses on strategies to prevent HIV and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) within the local social and epidemiologic context. In 2013, she received a K01 from the NIMH to study relationships between gay men in Peru and to develop an HIV prevention intervention for gay men. The proposed intervention will focus on their sexual partnerships and include couples voluntary counseling and testing for HIV infection.
