My current research, locally, focuses on the quality of care for patients living with HIV and developing metrics for evaluation of adequacy of linkage to care for persons released from prisons/jails to the community. As part of my work in Uganda, I am partnering with local investigators to address the problem of tuberculosis in pregnancy amongst inpatients at Mulago Hospital and to evaluate the impact of treatment for HIV in pregnancy on transmission of hepatitis B from mother to baby.
