Proscovia Nabunya's global research focuses on HIV-stigma reduction interventions, mental health, and 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 children and families' social, economic and health well-being 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 and family-level HIV-associated stigma among adolescents living with HIV and their families in Uganda.
She is a principal investigator of two projects: an NICHD-funded Suubi+Adherence-R2, aimed at examining the longitudinal HIV treatment adherence outcomes among youth living with HIV transitioning into young adulthood; and NIMH-funded Bridges-R2, evaluating the long-term impact of an economic empowerment intervention on HIV risk prevention and care continuum outcomes among orphaned youth transitioning to young adulthood.
Additionally, Nabunya serves as the co-director of the
International Center for Child Health and Development (ICHAD). This center works to reduce poverty and improve 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.
