Rhode Island physician honored nationally for establishing first HIV menopause clinic

ositive women, and if HIV-positive menopausal women place their partners at a higher risk for HIV infection through sexual contact. Determining the effect hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has on HIV-positive women also remains to be seen.

Cu-Uvin has spent most of her medical career caring for people with HIV, particularly women. For the past 10 years, her research has been focused on how HIV is shed in the genital tract of women an issue critical to understanding how the virus is spread through sexual contact and childbirth. Cu-Uvin treats virtually all the pregnant women with HIV in Rhode Island, and in the past five years, only one of her patients has transmitted HIV to her baby during childbirth.

Cu-Uvin is active internationally, training physicians and researchers on HIV diagnosis, treatment and prevention in India, Cambodia and the Philippines. She helped establish an HIV Women's Clinic in Cambodia where she teaches medical workers treatment options, but also how to apply for grants and conduct research studies relevant to women with HIV.
