Organisation: CREADIS (Community Research in Environment and Development Initiatives
Role: Monitoring and Evaluation Associate of HIV/AIDS Projects
I am currently working as a student intern in western Kenya with HIV/AIDS projects (particularly OVCs), however my main interest area is in food and nutrition security. I also work as a medic in the Canadian Forces part time and will be taking part in humanitarian efforts after my convocation in 2011 in areas of short-term poverty relief.
My research in Kenya is studying the correlations between HIV/AIDS and food security.
I intend on continuing my efforts in food security when I arive back in Canada in January, 2010. This newsletter has given me great ideas of how to become more involved in food security.
