NYU Gets Nearly $8M to Research Heterosexuals at High Risk of HIV

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded a $7.56 million grant to the New York University (NYU) College of Nursing to evaluate a program to find and treat heterosexuals at high risk of HIV, according to an NYU statement. The project—which is aimed largely at African Americans and Latinos—will enroll 3,400 participants during a five-year period. A 2006-2007 study found that more than 7 percent of high-risk heterosexuals in New York City were HIV positive—and that 5 percent of them were unaware of their status.
