Research

David's PhD research follows on from his experience with prevention of mother-to-child transmission in Swaziland. He's interested in evaluating the impact of Option B+ on maternal and infant survival and retention in HIV care. His research utilises data from Agincourt health and demographic surveillance system (HDSS), one of the ALPHA network sites in South Africa. Specifically, his research utilises data generated from clinical record linkage and an annually conducted demographic surveillance census.

David is affiliated with the Population Studies Group (PSG) at LSHTM.
