dc.description.abstract Through descriptive informetrics, HIV/AIDS research on Uganda and Kenya are compared by country, by publication type and date, by institutional affiliation, by publishing sources, by size of publications, by gender, and by nature of research collaboration. Research funding plays major role in the creation of relevant research centers in these countries and in financing research projects and research affiliates. Most publications are coauthored and focus on women, and a large proportion of HIV/AIDS documents are published outside Africa. The study recommends further research on the rest of Africa, on research collaboration, and on comparison of various population categories. The refinement of piloted research methodology and funding will be crucial for further research. en
