About Us

The Research Program on Children and Global Adversity (RPCGA) works to close the global implementation gap between the realities facing children and families in adversity such as that due to communal violence/armed conflict and HIV/AIDS and the evidence base on promoting mental health and child development in low resource settings. Directed by Dr. Theresa S. Betancourt, Associate Professor of Child Health and Human Rights in the Department of Global Health and Population, the program operates at the crossroads between research, policy and program design, implementation and evaluation.  The RPCGA is engaged in applied research to contribute to stronger and evidence-based interventions to serve children and families in adversity worldwide.
