Kris Cox

Ministry of Health, Government of Rwanda

Kris Cox worked with the Ministry of Health in Rwanda to design and implement a survey investigating obstacles to treatment encountered by HIV-infected adolescents.  The survey focused on the conditions that adolescents contend with in their school environments, and the support or discrimination they face within their families and communities.  The research  informed Ministry policies to better support the health of adolescents, a group that has fallen between the cracks of pediatric and adult care.
