Behavioral, Sexual, and Global Health Lab
(BSGH-LAB)
The Behavioral, Sexual, and Global Health Lab is led by Principal Investigator Gamji Rabiu Abu-Ba’are, PhD, MA, an assistant professor of nursing and public health and the inaugural Harriet J. Kitzman Endowed Fellow in Global Health Research at the University of Rochester. The lab features a diverse team of investigators and members who work collaboratively in Accra, Ghana and in Rochester, New York. The BSGH lab specializes in clinical trials and implementation science research that aims to comprehend the impact of intersectional stigma and discrimination (ISD) and behavioral and place-based factors on sexual health outcomes among at-risk populations in SSA, Western Europe, and the United States. Our diverse team of investigators and members from targeted groups collaborate to assess intervention priorities and adapt evidence-based interventions to reduce ISD and optimize the behavioral and sexual health outcomes of the target group. This transdisciplinary team works together from conceptualization to grant acquisition, implementation, data analysis, and dissemination in a collaborative effort.

The BSGH Lab, led by Principal Investigator Gamji Abu-Ba’are with the University of Rochester, welcomes new collaborations and opportunities for shared discovery and knowledge. Members of the BSGH lab work on active research projects involving research design, recruitment, data collection, transcriptions, coding, statistical analysis, and Geographic Information System-based analysis
