Other Projects

In June/July 2009 we started a pilot project to research care labor in AIDS-affected households. This is a partnership between Williams in Africa, the Department of Women and Gender Studies at Makerere University in Uganda, and the Global Coalition of Women Against AIDS in Uganda (GCOWAU). Five Williams students paired up with five Makerere students to do Time Use Surveys inside households in a rural area of Uganda. The data they gathered will help the GCOWAU and other activists in their work supporting caregivers and particularly women and vulnerable children in AIDS-affected communities. Results of the research will be posted here as they become available.
