KENYA MEDICAL RESEARCH INSTITUTE
Opening date: April 29, 2022 Vacancy No. CGHR/277/04/22
Project description: The Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI) in collaboration with Washington State University (WSU) and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention seek to undertake a COVID–19 Vaccine Effectiveness (CVE) study in Kenya championed by the Family Health Unit (FHU) in partnership with the Influenza Program. COVID–19 vaccine effectiveness data are currently unavailable in sub–Saharan Africa. In addition, conducting post– introduction CVE studies in sub–Saharan Africa will increase science–based evidence, public confidence, demand, and utilization of available vaccines.
