  • PolicyLab doesn’t do its research in a vacuum. We actively partner and collaborate with different academic and community-based organizations to address policy issues that affect health inequities among marginalized adolescents.

  • Youth-friendly technology, such as smart phones and social media sites, can be used to help improve and promote HIV and STI prevention and treatment among adolescents. We are developing a variety of interventions that incorporate short message service (SMS), mobile application programs, and utilization of social media sites.
