Dr. Caroline Jones
Ph.D. Medical Anthropologist and senior social scientist at KEMRI- Wellcome Trust Reseach Programme in Kilifi, Kenya.
With a background in medical anthropology her research over the past 12 years has focused on treatment seeking and preventive behaviours for malaria and the factors that influence provider practices in sub-Saharan Africa. More recently she has been looking at the implementability and sustainability of public health interventions, focusing on issues relating to social relationships, organizational structure and management and leadership. Research capacity strengthening and the promotion of the appropriate use of high quality social science research in the development and implementation of public health policy are major concerns underpinning much of her work. A key role in her current position is to contribute to building Kenyan and regional expertise to develop and lead such research.
