Eithandee completed a Master of International Public Health investigating HIV testing knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours among young South Sudanese migrants living in Brisbane, Australia. She has worked as a community development officer to increase the capacity of newly-arrived refugees and asylum seekers (mainly from Iraq and Syria) to settle into Australia and access mainstream services.
Eithandee is currently the project coordinator responsible for the coordination, management and outputs of the Identifying Gaps in Achieving the Virtual Elimination of HIV Project (The Gaps Project) within the HIV Epidemiology and Prevention Program. The Gaps Project aims to: (1) Bring together existing and new data to characterise populations that are accessing and not accessing HIV testing, HIV treatment, PrEP, and behavioural risk reduction; (2) Provide guidance to researchers, clinicians, government and community organisations in how to reduce access inequities and maximise prevention benefits.
