  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
  • Internal medicine
  • Disease

Linda-Gail Bekker mainly focuses on Immunology, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Tuberculosis, Internal medicine and Pediatrics. Linda-Gail Bekker has researched Immunology in several fields, including Epidemiology and Virology. Her research in Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome intersects with topics in Psychological intervention, Mortality rate, Demography and Family medicine.

Her Tuberculosis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Incidence and Disease. Her Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Placebo, Surgery and Pre-exposure prophylaxis. Her Pediatrics research also works with subjects such as

  • Young adult which connect with Cross-sectional study,
  • Developing country which intersects with area such as Health care and Environmental health.

Her most cited work include:

  • Preexposure Chemoprophylaxis for HIV Prevention in Men Who Have Sex with Men (3558 citations)
  • Uptake of pre-exposure prophylaxis, sexual practices, and HIV incidence in men and transgender women who have sex with men: a cohort study (747 citations)
  • Emtricitabine-tenofovir concentrations and pre-exposure prophylaxis efficacy in men who have sex with men. (606 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Family medicine, Immunology, Internal medicine and Tuberculosis. Her studies deal with areas such as Psychological intervention, Pregnancy, Demography, Developing country and Pediatrics as well as Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.

Her research integrates issues of Qualitative research, Epidemiology, Medical prescription and MEDLINE in her study of Family medicine. Linda-Gail Bekker focuses mostly in the field of Internal medicine, narrowing it down to matters related to Placebo and, in some cases, Dapivirine and Clinical trial. Her Clinical trial study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as HIV vaccine, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Tuberculosis and Public relations.

Between 2019 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • The influence of HIV-related stigma on PrEP disclosure and adherence among adolescent girls and young women in HPTN 082: a qualitative study. (34 citations)
