Welcome to the HAYA (Healthy Adolescents & Young Adults) Research Unit

This new Unit is a partnership between the Centre for Maternal, Adolescent, Reproductive and Child Health (MARCH) at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and the Africa Centre for Population Health. It is being funded by the ViiV Positive Action Programme, which supports communities affected by HIV and AIDS.

The Unit will work collaboratively with other research groups, developing academic partnerships nationally, regionally and internationally. The initiative will also provide a focus for training and building capacity in research and adolescent healthcare in sub-Saharan Africa.
