Eva Muthamia, MBChB
Student, MSc in Epidemiology, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London, UK
Eva graduated with a MBChB from the University of Nairobi in 2006, after which she worked in rural Kenya as a general physician. More recently, she has worked in facilities serving the informal settlements of Mukuru and Kibera. Serving these large populations in facilities with limited resources means finding innovative and efficient ways to stretch resources while providing quality care. She presented a paper on “Strategic use of Viral Load testing to diagnose treatment failure” at the First National Biennial HIV and AIDS research conference in 2011 in Nairobi. She played a key role in the Data Management at one of the sites conducting an observational study on HIV Primary Drug Resistance. In 2011, she attended the 17th annual conference of the British HIV Association and was awarded a clinical placement at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital through the Abbott Travelling Scholarship. Eva is passionate about mentorship and training. She is currently pursuing a MSc Epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
