Overview
My primary research interest is on community-based programs for health improvement in low and middle-income settings. I have a broad interest in improving health care by engaging community health workers at primary health care level for major non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, and cervical cancer.
