  • HIV Prevention

Bernard Kikaire is a medical epidemiologist, Lecturer at Makerere College of Health Sciences, and
leader of the HIV work package in the Eastern Africa Consortium for Clinical Research. His research

interests are in HIV prevention, care, and treatment, and he has recently developed an interest in
HIV Cure Research. He aims to contribute to research that informs policy in the prevention and
management of HIV in Sub-Saharan Africa. The cure for HIV remains elusive, therefore finding better
approaches to prevention, identification of those infected, and better options of care for those
infected is critical to ensure continued epidemic control and better life outcomes for those infected.
