Kirby Institute Seminar Series presents
Mr Techalew Woldkiros
Techalew Woldkiros is a PhD student at Kirby Institute with a background in Medical Laboratory Sciences and Tropical Infectious Diseases. His research focuses on improving the diagnosis and analysing the epidemiology of infectious diseases, particularly malaria, intestinal parasitic infections, sexually transmitted infections, and other bacterial and viral infections.
Improving the diagnosis and management of childhood febrile illnesses and enhancing caregivers’ health seeking practices are among key strategies to reduce child mortality in low income countries. We conducted the first study in Ethiopia, and one of the few in Africa, to systemically investigate fever aetiologies, management practices, and clinical outcomes of acute febrile illness in children, as well as the health care seeking behaviour by their caregivers.
