Jennifer W. Kibicho, PhD
Dr. Kibicho, a health economist, is interested in the health and behavioral economic aspects of antiretroviral prescription drug use and cost drivers, and their implications for evidence-based cost containment policies for publicly funded Medicaid and AIDS Drug Assistance Programs. Her research explores strategies to promote patient antiretroviral adherence with a view to design pharmacist-centered interventions transferable to resource-poor settings. Dr. Kibicho's other research interests include multi-level structural-level interventions that address the health, socioeconomic, and safety needs of HIV-infected women in resource-poor settings, specifically Kenya and Malawi.
