I worked on the Horizons program which focused on HIV/AIDS. I spent most of my time analyzing data from a study being conducted in Zambia on health care workers. The objective of this study was to assess the impact of HIV/AIDS on health care workers and to implement a worksite-based program to address problems identified. I also assisted in writing papers and preparing presentations on this study. To gain insights about doing fieldwork in Kenya, I visited two locations where the Horizons program had ongoing projects. I went to one of the control sites which was an elementary school in a small town called Molo. It was interesting to hear some of the challenges the fieldworkers had in getting children to participate in the study, since parental consent was required.
