Dear STRIPE learners,
The Coronovirus-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is having profound impacts across the global including Africa. Since there have only been a few cases in Africa to date, there is a unique opportunity to take decisive steps to prevent the same repercussions in Africa that there have been elsewhere in Europe, Asia and North America.

Thank you for participating in STRIPE HIV. To better understand the impact of the STRIPE HIV training we are asking you to take part in a research study being done by a team at the University of California, San Francisco. Participation in this study is optional. If you choose to be in the study, you will complete an electronic pre-survey and post-survey following the completion of the STRIPE HIV modules. Each of the surveys will take less than 20 minutes. You may be asked at a later time to participate in a follow up focus group or interview. This survey will help us learn what improvements and changes we need to make to the training curriculum—we greatly value your feedback. Please consider the following: 1) your answers will not be linked to or impact your academic grades or standing; 2) Only the aggregate of all responses will be shared beyond the research team. We will keep your answers confidential and will not share your personal information with anyone outside the research team. You can stop the survey at any time.
If you have any questions, please contact the STRIPE study team at STRIPEHIV@ucsf.edu. If you have questions or concerns about your rights as a research participant, you can call the UCSF Institutional Review Board at +1 415-476-1814.
