Project summary

Dorothy is a medical anthropologist working for the KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Research Programme, in the Health Systems Research Department with Dr Caroline Jones. Dorothy's research interest is in maternal and child health in low-income countries. Her research aims to contribute to the process of more accurately documenting women's lived experiences during pregnancy and how that translates to their health-seeking behaviour. The in-depth understanding of the continuum of care is intended to contribute to the implementation of culturally appropriate interventions for the reduction of maternal and child mortality, particularly in Africa.

This grant was awarded under the scheme's previous name of Master's Fellowships in Public Health and Tropical Medicine.
