Predictors and Optimal Diagnostics of Placental Malaria in Tororo, Uganda
The goal of this project is to identify predictors of placental malaria among HIV-infected and –uninfected women in rural Uganda, and to assess correlations between four methods of diagnosing placental malaria and low birth weight (LBW) among HIV-infected and –uninfected women.

Acceptability and Feasibility of Serial HIV Antibody Testing to Detect Incident HIV Infection During Pregnancy and Lactation and Partner Testing in Tororo, Uganda
The objective of this study is to assess the acceptability and feasibility of serial HIV antibody testing among HIV-uninfected pregnant and breastfeeding women from the initiation of antenatal care until 24 weeks postpartum in Tororo, Uganda.

Women’s Interagency HIV Study (WIHS) IV
The Connie Wofsy Women’s HIV Study (CWWHS) is one of the six national WIHS clinical sites. The major goal of the WIHS is to investigate the natural history of HIV in women, with special attention to the effect of HIV therapy on behavioral, medical, and gynecological conditions. The CWWHS plans on following 500 HIV-infected or at-risk HIV-uninfected women. Participants are evaluated via semi-annual interviews, physical examinations and specimen collections.

Evaluating the Implementation of the CDC’s Revised Recommendations for HIV Testing
This proposal outlines an approach to supporting health care delivery sites in evaluating the effect that expanded HIV screening activities have on patient attitudes and acceptance of HIV screening and prevention in accord with the HHS/CDC’s Revised Recommendations for HIV Testing of Adults, Adolescents and Pregnant Women in Health Care Settings.

Novel Strategies to Prevent Malaria and Improve HIV Outcomes in Africa
The primary goal will be to build on current knowledge to establish new approaches to reduce HIV and malaria burden in sub-Saharan Africa, and to advance the public health approach to both diseases.
The projects will be conducted in the context of proven malaria preventive strategies that are currently the standard of care for most of sub-Saharan Africa: 1) the use of chemoprophylaxis with trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole in HIV-infected children and pregnant women, and 2) the use of insecticide treated nets. The primary objective of the pregnancy study is to evaluate whether the use of protease-inhibitor-based antiretroviral therapy is associated with a decreased risk of placental malaria among HIV-infected pregnant women.
