Select from the following:

Dr. Anjuli Wagner is faculty in the Global WACh Center in the Department of Global Health who has been working in Kenya for 11 years. Her interests within global health include pediatric HIV, implementation science, and operations research and she specializes in systems analysis and quality improvement. Anjuli has been involved in a series of studies that range from incentive trials to pediatric HIV diagnostic testing to adolescent HIV to PrEP in pregnancy. She is passionate about working in collaboration with ministries of health to identify health system research priorities and address relevant questions with implementation science.

Dr. Wagner is currently the PI of a K01 focused on testing implementation strategies to improve delivery of PrEP for pregnant and postpartum women in Kenya, and a CFAR pilot award focused on engaging diverse adolescents in research using respondent driven sampling and virtual focus groups. She is a co-investigator on projects focusing on optimizing the pediatric HIV cascade using systems engineering tools in Kenya; causes of mortality for adolescents living with HIV in Kenya; and integrating point-of-care viral load testing in both Kenya and the US.
