PhD Karolinska Institutet 2006: Managing childhood malaria in rural Tanzania - focusing on drug use and resistance
My research interest focuses on different aspects of infectious disease pharmacology. Within this field my interest spans broadly from molecular aspects to impact on societal changes. My main focus is on low-and middle-income countries (LMIC), but also includes e.g. evaluations of adherence to guidelines in Sweden. I work mostly with treatment of the infectious diseases causing the highest burden on society in LMIC, with a focus on HIV/Aids. Although the pharmacological part of my work includes pharmacokinetics and pharmacogenetics and how these influence treatment outcome and practices, a major part of my work comes from a systems/health system approach.
I am also affiliated to the Department of Public Health Sciences and the Health Systems Research group where I co-coordinate the Sida funded KI-Makerere collaborative project "Innovations in the health system: interventions for improved treatment of infectious diseases in children in rural Uganda" (http://ki.se/en/phs/improving-use-of-medicines)
