ICRH Kenya

January 2019 Journal club

We’ll resume our Journal club this month on Thursday 24th January 2019 from 3 to 4 pm. ICRH Kenya will host the meeting, at our boardroom.  For this month, we selected a qualitative paper on HIV testing among adolescents, drawn from research conducted by UW in Nairobi. This is an interesting paper considering almost half the new HIV infections in Kenya are among young persons and uptake of HIV testing, care and treatment are still suboptimal in this group. Adolescents and young people HIV remains a priority both locally and internationally. For this year,  we’ll try to diversity and have more qualitative research,  implementation research and other study designs.
