Projects of Stanley

HIV & AIDS

Modelling the impact of microbicides on HIV incidence and HIV prevalence

The overall objective of this project is to develop and apply dynamic epidemiological microsimulation models to assess the expected impact of microbicides on HIV incidence and HIV prevalence. These models will be applied in a population of female sex workers and their clients in Mombasa, Kenya. The expected impact of microbicides on HIV incidence and HIV prevalence is a function of the intrinsic efficacy of the modeled microbicide and the behavioral, demographical and epidemiological dynamics of the population in which the microbicides are introduced.

Mombasa Cervical Cancer Screening Project

Objectives: To assess the success of community outreach to enhance the coverage of at risk women with cervical pre-cancer. To assess the performance of different methods for cervical cancer screening (Papanicolaou (PAP) smear, visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA) and testing for Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)) in field conditions in poor resource countries. To evaluate outpatient treatment, including "see and treat" for cervical pre-cancer when applied in field conditions. To set up a cervical cancer task force in an urban setting in Kenya.
