ZEP at the 2021 Canadian Conference on Global Health
We shared some research outcomes at the 2021 Canadian Conference on Global Health. Speaking about the connection between high HIV prevalence, access to maternal and child health services, and increasingly variable seasonal flooding, Mwimanenwa Njungu discussed how communities require better transportation infrastructure. Improved transportation infrastructure will connect communities to health services, even when it floods. This will, in turn, have beneficial impacts on access to and utilization of HIV testing, treatment and PMTCT services in the Zambezi flood plain.
Our presentation included updates from Mwimanenwa Njungu, Chris Thomas, Douglas Singini, and Inonge Milupi. We also featured a separate project led by Lesley Johnston. In her presentation, Dr. Johnston shared strategies for integrating more women in Solwezi’s mining sector.
