Dr. Abigail Harrison’s research focuses on young women, gender, HIV/AIDS, and reproductive health in sub-Saharan Africa. Her current projects address 1) young women’s reproductive decision-making and HIV risk, including contraceptive use, peri-conception behaviors, and unintended pregnancy, 2) social, economic, and health disparities in relation to HIV/AIDS, and 3) behavioral economics approaches to HIV prevention. Harrison's research draws on approaches from epidemiology and anthropological demography, using ethnographic, qualitative, and community survey methods.
