Prof. Frikkie Booysen from the Department of Economics at the University of the Free State (UFS) has been awarded the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship to visit the United States of America (USA) in the 2010/11 academic year. Prof. Booysen, who is also attached to the Centre for Health Systems Research and Development at the UFS, will visit Rand Corporation’s Health and Population Unit in Santa Monica and the Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research at Bryn Mawr College, Philadelphia. 

His research will focus on his ongoing work on the socio-economic impact of the Free State Department of Health’s anti-retroviral treatment programme and the new work on a proposed prospective evaluation of the National Department of Social Development’s family preservation programme’s role in improving family resilience, cohesion and well-being in poor communities. Prof. Booysen will depart for the USA during September this year.
