Ms Emily Ott

Research Student - DrPH - Epidemiology & Population Health

United Kingdom

My ongoing DrPH research is a continuation of the impact evaluation of the 'DREAMS' Partnership, which aims to reduce HIV incidence among adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) across Kenya, South Africa, and Zimbabwe. My thesis aims to investigate the approaches by which DREAMS integrated HIV prevention and sexual and reproductive health service delivery as part of the implementation in Kenya.

My doctoral supervisors are Dr. Isolde Birdthistle and Sian Floyd.
