PHDA presents at CAHR 2021

PHDA in partnership with University of Manitoba and MAAYGO presented at the Annual Canadian Conference on HIV/AIDS Research (CAHR) in May 2021. The presentation introduced the key concepts of program science and shared a practical example of a HIV Self Testing project in Kenya. Program Science is the systematic application of theoretical and empirical scientific knowledge to improve the design, implementation and evaluation of public health programs. This presentation provided conceptual clarity of the approach and showed how this approach is applied in a real life intervention in Kenya. The presentation received very positive feedback from the participants.
