HIV/AIDS project in Kenya.
managed and supervised national staff with various clinical officers. I helped
teach the clinicians about HIV/AIDS and advised them on HIV care.
I was studying a cohort of AIDS patients who were on ARV treatment for more than one year to determine whether viral loads point out ARV failure sooner than clinical and immunological outcomes. My research activities revolved around implementation and evaluation of public health interventions using policy analysis techniques. Particular interest was around the role of private sector as a complementary option to improve access to prompt and effective treatment of disease of public health importance such as malaria. I was in four years involved in operational research activities to support district level implementation of context specific strategies to optimize Home Management of Malaria in Kenya, East Africa.. The main goal was to assess the performance of malaria control programmes targeting private medicine retailers by addressing coverage, utilization, impact of programme on retailer knowledge, practices and implementation processes. These studies were conducted in the western and lake basin areas in Kenya. The assignment also involved a range of other studies that broadly focused on improving access to health facilities and addressing the health system challenges in the delivery of health care. These included understanding the operation of pharmacies and drug shops, and how practices and behavior of attending staff related to regulatory frameworks. This study sites are also linked to malaria prone districts in the aforementioned places in Kenya.
