Research Ethics
Medical Anthropology

Research Interests:

Stewart’s research interests include HIV/AIDS in Africa and the US, and research ethics of clinical trials in Africa. Her dissertation focused on adolescent HIV/AIDS in Uganda using ethnographic interviewing, population-based surveys and biological markers. In conjunction with that work, she implemented the first voluntary HIV rapid testing and counseling clinic in a rural area of Uganda, which led to changes in national policy. Most recently, she is the co-editor of a special issue of Global Public Health on Global Health Ethics. She recently started a new research project on HIV/AIDS in Cuba.
