1. Lewis, Chantal Anna-Stacia. Resilience Among HIV-Positive Patients in Ghana and Their Affect on Remaining in the Treatment Cascade: A Qualitative Study Done at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra, Ghana.

Degree: School of Public Health, 2017, Brown University

Few African studies have focused on resilience factors related to engagement in HIV-related care among people living with HIV (PLWH). As a result, how resilience might be promoted to improve adherence to HIV-care programs in Ghana—and elsewhere in Africa—is poorly understood. A better understanding of resilience relating to HIV management of those living with the disease can contribute new scientific insights into how to improve adherence to care among HIV-positive individuals. Given the dearth of research studies in this area, I completed an exploratory, qualitative study to better understand resilience factors enacted by highly adherent people living with HIV (PLWH), particularly highly adherent heterosexuals, MSM and FSW. This exploratory study was guided by a conceptual framework that combines elements from existing integrative models of Wallander and Varni’s Disability-Stress-Coping Model of Adjustment (ref) as well as resilience-based studies done among gay/bisexual males in the US (Harper et al. 2014). Data were collected via in-depth interviews with 30 individuals who attend the HIV clinic at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital and the Adabraka Polyclinic in Accra, Ghana. These data were used to further the understanding of HIV-related reliance factors among Ghanaians living with HIV and to provide evidence-based recommendations for HIV-care programs.

2. Righi, Mary Kirtley. A Qualitative Analysis of Sexual Consent among High School Students.

Degree: School of Public Health, 2018, Brown University

Sexual violence is common in adolescence. Education on sexual consent is considered to be a critical component of many sexual assault prevention programs, and it is possible that an understanding of sexual consent assists adolescents in developing healthy dating and sexual relationships. Accordingly, the current study conducted a series of semi-structured interviews (N = 29) to explore perceptions of sexual consent among high school students (ages 14 – 18). Thematic analysis identified three salient themes pertaining to: 1) the definition of consent; 2) verbal and non-verbal strategies for conveying consent; and 3) expectations of how consent would be communication following an initial sexual encounter. In the present sample, adolescents defined consent as saying “yes” sexual activity. Whereas consent was defined as a verbal provision of affirmative consent, both male and female adolescents believed that girls typically conveyed consent non-verbally. Girls indicated that they typically conveyed sexual refusal through non-verbal cues, whereas adolescent males reported proceeding with sexual activity until they heard the verbal expression of “no.” Adolescents shared the perception that adolescents who previously engaged in sexual activity can expect that sexual activity will happen again without the need for verbal consent, particularly within an established relationship. These findings highlight important discrepancies in adolescents’ definition of sexual consent, and how they communicate sexual consent and sexual refusal. Variation in how girls describe communicating sexual refusal, and the signals boys describe as indicating refusal for sex may contribute to unwanted sexual experiences among adolescents.
