Diverse research teams study areas spanning disease aetiology, disease burden, intervention coverage, factors determining infection dynamics in relation to host behaviour and demography, and pathogen strain structure. Projects make use of two major research platforms: a multi-disciplinary hospital-based clinical network involving County Hospitals in Kenya (Clinical Information Network) and a community-based surveillance platform in Kilifi County (Kilifi Health Demographic and Surveillance System). We collaborate with governments and multilateral partners such as World Health Organization, Africa CDC, and the Gavi Alliance to translate our research outputs into policy and practice.
