Caroline Kuo is a behavioral and social scientist. Her research program focuses on addressing disparities in mental health, sexual and reproductive health, violence, HIV and other infectious diseases among vulnerable populations in low-resource communities. A signature element of her research includes community-engaged approaches to ensure that public health science is developed, tested, and deployed in partnership with children, families, and adults living in some of the world’s most underserved communities. This approach fosters solutions to urgent public health crises that are culturally and contextually salient and that are implemented “with” populations rather than “on” populations. Another signature element of her research is the use of sequential or integrated qualitative and quantitative study designs to develop, test, and deploy preventive interventions. A third signature element of her research is collaborative and interdisciplinary team science. She builds and fosters long-term equitable international partnerships with scientists that have complementary expertise in epidemiology, anthropology, medicine, and economics. A final signature element of her research is the application of novel ethical approaches to ensure rigorous science is generated while providing the upmost protections to vulnerable populations. She is passionate about cultivating and supporting the scientific talent of public health scientists, practitioners, and policy-makers of diverse backgrounds.
Her global public health research has included community-based epidemiological studies, qualitative exploratory studies, mixed-methods studies, and intervention development and testing among vulnerable populations. Her expertise in social policy, evidence-based intervention, and international development informs her research, the majority of which takes place in low-resource global settings. Her current global public health research focuses on developing innovative family programs to promote children’s resilience for mental health and HIV prevention; creating novel behavioral economic interventions to improve treatment for teenagers living with HIV; tailoring biobehavioral HIV prevention approaches to meet the needs of young people; and testing ways to integrate prevention of HIV with prevention of rape and sexual assault.
