Research Care and Training Program (RCTP) Interviewers Jobs in Kisumu Districts, Kenya 2012

The goal of the study is to understand the mental health care needs of HIV+ women affected by Gender based violence (GBV), served by FACES, with particular attention to the impact of emotional distress on ARV adherence and HIV outcomes.
