"At the heart of our work, the most rewarding moments are when we have the opportunity to work with communities and decision-makers to generate robust, transparent, model-based evidence that could be used to help shift a narrative around our understanding of HIV/STI epidemics. It’s rewarding to help front-line programs and services with their design or evaluation, or better inform policy-changes.”
