Portrait of Proscovia Nabunya

Proscovia Nabunya’s research focuses on HIV-stigma reduction interventions, family and community-based support systems as protective factors for the development and well-being of children and families impacted by HIV/AIDS. She has research expertise in poverty-reduction strategies that utilize asset-based interventions and their impact on the social, economic and health well-being of children and families in HIV-impacted communities in sub-Saharan Africa.

Nabunya’s current NIMH-funded study known as Suubi4Stigma, examines two evidence-based interventions, i.e. multiple family group and group cognitive behavioral therapy to address individual-level and family level HIV-associated stigma among adolescents living with HIV, and their families in Uganda. She is also a co-principal investigator of an NICHD-funded Suubi+Adherence-R2, aimed at examining the longitudinal HIV treatment adherence outcomes among youth living with HIV transitioning into young adulthood in Uganda

Additionally, Nabunya serves as the co-director for the International Center for Child Health and Development (ICHAD), which contributes to the reduction of poverty and improvements in public health outcomes for children and families in low resource settings in sub-Saharan Africa.

Before joining the Brown School, Nabunya completed the Provost’s Post-Doctoral and Transitional Program for Academic Diversity Fellowship at New York University’s Silver School of Social Work.
