Dr. Susan M. Kiene studies behaviors that put individuals at risk for HIV/AIDS and methods for preventing HIV transmission. Dr. Kiene's research program in rural Uganda (the Salawo Collaboration) aims to develop effective and sustainable methods in the public health care sector to empower individuals to change their behavior to protect themselves from HIV or to prevent transmitting HIV to un-infected others.
Dr. Susan M. Kiene has conducted social and behavioral science research on HIV/AIDS prevention in the U.S., Uganda, South Africa, and Puerto Rico. She has two general programs of research. The first concerns investigating the dynamics of HIV risk behavior and maintenance of safer behavior to understand the situational, interpersonal, and individual difference factors that influence HIV risk behavior. The second program of research focuses on developing and evaluating theory-based, tailored interventions to reduce HIV risk behavior. She is also researching methods to increase use of family planning in sub-Saharan Africa.
