Biographical Statement

kathleen Cash

Since 1986, Kathleen Cash, Ed.D. has developed and conducted HIV/AIDS integrated research and prevention programs primarily for women and youth in Thailand, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Haiti, Uganda and Los Angeles. Prior to that, she worked in education and women's reproductive and sexual health in Ethiopia, Indonesia, Thailand, Malawi, Bangladesh, and the United States. Her work in HIV/AIDS began in 1991 in Thailand as a Women and AIDS Research Project through the International Center for Research on Women, Washington DC. The methodologies she employed for the HIV/AIDS projects described on this website are currently being adapted to an environmental-agricultural and human rights program in Haiti. She has received two Fulbright grants: one in 1988 to Thailand as a lecturer in the Department of Non-Formal Education at Chiang Mai University and the other in 2004 to Uganda as an HIV/AIDS research fellow. In Uganda, her research focused on the relationship between domestic and sexual violence and the transmission of HIV/AIDS. She recently received a Radcliffe Institute Research Fellowship for 2007-2008.
