Lay Health Worker Approaches for Addressing Mental Health Challenges in Populations Affected by HIV in Kenya

This is a past event.

Lay health workers include folks like community health workers, village health workers, and traditional birth attendants. They perform functions related to health care delivery and are trained in some way in the context intervention, but haven't formal professional training.

What role can these lay health workers play in supporting mental health needs, especially for people living with HIV?

Dr. Linnet Ongeri will talk about her work with lay health workers and mental health interventions in Kenya. Dr. Ongeri is a Medical Research Scientist in the Centre for Clinic Research with Kenya Medical Research Institute.

This event is co-sponsored by the Sparkman Center for Global Health, the Lister Hill Center for Health Policy and the Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) at UAB.
