UKZN Produces its First African Female Psychiatrist with a PhD
UKZN has produced its first African female Psychiatrist with a PhD. Dr Sibongile Mashaphu’s study tested a behavioral intervention among serodiscordant couples, where one partner is HIV positive and the other is not. The aim was to help the couples to navigate some of the challenges that they face on a daily basis and to reduce transmission of the virus. Given the lack of an HIV vaccine; behavior change is vital.
