deborah-mindryIFC Visiting Scholar, Deborah Mindry

Deborah Mindry is a Research Anthropologist in the UCLA Center for Culture and Health. Her research interests include gender politics, NGOS and development, and HIV/AIDS. She has conducted qualitative ethnographic research in South Africa since the early 1990s. Her current research examines fertility intentions and safer conception services for HIV infected men and women in South Africa (Durban), Malawi (Lilongwe and Nkhoma), Uganda (Kampala) and USA (Los Angeles). She is currently working on a book manuscript, “I am HIV: Ordinary people daring to live and make change in South Africa” which challenges conceptions of Africans as victims of HIV and examines the complex realities of people living with HIV, their determination to survive and to make change in their communities. Deborah is happy to meet with students and may be contacted at dmindry@ucla.edu.
