This test-of-concept study will carry out formative clinical and behavioral research to guide the design and conduct of a
larger prevention intervention trial to establish the usefulness of "Visual Inspection with Acetic acid" and HPV-based screening
tests, and establish best practice guidelines for the management of cervical neoplasia in HIV-infected women in India.

The purpose of this project is to strengthen and sustain, through collaborative training, the ability of NIAID-funded scientists,
physicians, nurses, and public health practitioners to contribute to clinical research on infectious diseases at the three
International Clinical Research Centers (ICER) sites of Bamako (Mali), Chennai (India), and Kampala (Uganda). During the
first year of the project, in-depth training need assessments were conducted at all three sites; in 2004 UAB organized about a
dozen of in-country workshops, research site visits and short-term internships - some of them in partnership with the Vanderbilt
University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, and the Universities of Cape Town and Kwazulu-Natal in South Africa.
