Chargée de recherche, sociologue, Institut de recherche pour le développement (IRD)

My research interests focus on healthcare practices and policies in Subsaharan Africa, African states, global health governance, hospitals, HIV and the management of coinfections and comorbities (viral hepatitis, tuberculosis). My doctoral research was focused on the national program for access to antiretrovirals and the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Botswana. It was published (in french) in 2014 "Prendre soin de sa population. L'exception botswanaise face au sida". I have then undertaken a postdoctoral research on the management of viral hepatitis B & C in Cameroon. Building on these previous works I am currently developing a project on hospital care and hospital policies in Africa.
