Drexel: Groves Recognized by WHO for Her Research on HIV-affected Mothers and Children

Dr. Ali Groves, assistant professor of Community Health and Prevention at the Dornsife School of Public Health, was selected to participate in an advocacy development session at a World Health Organization (WHO) meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, on December 13, 2019, as a “key change-maker” in the field of scientists researching the needs of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-affected mothers and their young children.

Dr. Groves was selected in part because of a commentary that she published in the Journal of the International AIDS Society in which she argues that there has been insufficient attention to the unique needs of adolescent mothers in sub‐Saharan Africa in the attempt to eradicate disparities in HIV prevention and care.

The goal of the session was to help build an evidence-based advocacy agenda. Groves participated in a series of discussions attended by other global health leaders working to reduce health disparities for HIV-affected adolescent mothers and their children.
