We design and conduct a broad spectrum of health research. The team has pioneered research in the areas of HIV and STI, generating and using evidence to develop programmes and policies. Some of the ground-breaking work conducted by the PHDA, University of Manitoba, and its partners have had an impact on programme and policy in Kenya and other counties.
Programme development & Delivery
PHDA and its partner, the University of Manitoba, have implemented programmes for more than three decades. The team was among the first to initiate HIV prevention and treatment programmes with sex workers in Kenya.
