KENYA

Kenya has hosted more NPGH Fogarty Fellows than any other country, so previous projects have covered a wide range of topics: everything from shock-related mortality in pediatric patients to STI modeling in non-human primates. Though much research has focused on HIV/AIDS, there have been many different approaches including the effect of hormonal birth control on HIV risk, partner notification in serodiscordant couples, and the interplay between iron deficiency, malaria, and HIV. Dr. Bukusi, Co-Director of the Research Care and Treatment Program at the Kenya Medical Research Institute, gave an interview about her career as an HIV/AIDS researcher on our blog, and Fan Lee, a 2014-2015 Fogarty Scholar also wrote about her experiences at the start of her fellowship.
