Dr. Priscilla Akwara and team receive award at XVIII International AIDS Conference

When UNICEF statistics expert Dr. Priscilla Akwara looked at the usual ways of assessing a child’s vulnerability in the face of HIV and AIDS, what she saw wasn’t true to her own experience. And so, collaborating with nine co-authors, she became a detective, combing through data to find out which factors can reliably be seen to make a child vulnerable.

The conclusions reached by Dr. Akwara and her co-authors have led to a prestigious award given at the XVIII International AIDS Conference, which is under way this week in Vienna, Austria.

In a ceremony at the conference today, the International AIDS Society (IAS) and the Coalition on Children Affected by AIDS (CCABA) honoured Dr. Akwara and her team with the IAS/CCABA Prize for Excellence in Research Related to the Needs of Children Affected by AIDS.
