OVERVIEW

          Ingrid Katz's research focuses on the social determinants of health behavior among disenfranchised populations. She is most interested in areas that impact the most vulnerable populations in resource-limited settings where there are high rates of HIV. She is currently funded through NIMH to study factors impacting HIV treatment refusal in Soweto, South Africa. She has also been involved in research on HPV vaccine uptake, cervical cancer in HIV-infected women, and the impact of HIV-related stigma on medication adherence, among other topics.
         
          In addition to research and clinical work, she has worked as an editorial fellow at the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) and is currently a National Correspondent for NEJM. She has co-authored perspectives and editorials on topics ranging from cervical cancer in the developing world to the politicization of international aid.
