Selected projects

  • TEENAIDS Project, (2007-2010), we worked with WHO to model the HIV epidemic to obtain survival estimates for HIV-infected children, and conducted studies in primary and secondary health care facilities to investigate HIV prevalence and spectrum of HIV-associated disease among adolescents in Zimbabwe. Following an observation that chronic cough was common among children attending clinics, we investigated the likely cause of this cough, which is often misdiagnosed as tuberculosis.

  • CHILDAID Project, (2010-2011), we conducted a study in 6 primary schools (targeting 6000 students) to investigate the feasibility of school-linked HIV testing for children.

  • ZENITH & HARD Projects, (since 2012), we are currently conducting three studies: i) Evaluation of the effectiveness of provider-initiated HIV testing and counselling for older children, ii) a randomised controlled trial of an intervention to support families of HIV-infected children as a means of improving adherence to treatment and retention in HIV care of these children and iii) a cohort study to investigate the epidemiology of chronic lung and cardiac disease in HIV-infected children.
