Join our chat with Bruce Walker, Krista Dong, Douglas Kwon, and Thumbi Ndung’u, scientists behind the FRESH (Females Rising Through Education, Support, and Health) program in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, where the HIV incidence rate is approaching 10% per year. Unlike other HIV research projects, the Gates Foundation-funded FRESH offers educational opportunities – including academic training and interactive sessions on self-esteem, relationship, and gender-based violence – that's provided at no cost to all study participants.
