Jayne's research is broadly on the delivery of public health interventions including interventions to control malaria in pregnancy, treatment of febrile illness in children, and nutrition interventions. She uses quantitative, qualitative and economic methods in her studies which encompass the community, health facility, district and national levels. Methods for monitoring and evaluation of delivery systems, their effectiveness, and the equity achieved via alternative systems are elements that cut through much of her research.
