Molly Rosenberg is an epidemiologist who studies how social, structural and economic factors influence sexual health outcomes. Her work has largely focused on adolescent sexual health in South Africa, where the burden of HIV continues to be felt most strongly. Rosenberg’s research is focused on identifying novel structural intervention targets to improve sexual health, with representative studies examining the relationship between alcohol outlets and herpes infections, the influence of school dropout on teen pregnancy, and the potential for anti-poverty programs like cash transfers and microfinance to influence HIV risk.
