The Brazilian Society of Tropical Medicine were keen to interview Professor Nyovani Madise

The Brazilian Society of Tropical Medicine have picked up on the most recent paper on HIV/AIDS in slums published by Professor Madise

In 2008, the global urban population surpassed the rural population and by 2050 more than 6 billion will be living in urban centres.

The work of Nyovani Madise and her team is in response to the growing body of research which has reported on poor health outcomes among the urban poor and the fact that not much is known about HIV prevalence among this group.

The Brazilian Society of Tropical Medicine sought an interview with  Nyovani, following publication of the research into this that she and her team are doing. The article was published in Science Direct, volume 18 issue 5.
