Judith Mangeni


My background was initially in Nursing as I hold a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Nairobi. However, because of interest in public health issues, I switched to public health for my masters and PhD. I have just completed defending my PhD in Public Health at the University of Nairobi, Kenya. In my PhD study, I investigated malaria transmission indices and associated risk factors for repeated malaria episodes in fever hotspots and cold spots in a high transmission region in western Kenya. I have generally been involved in studies on communicable diseases especially malaria and previously HIV/AIDs. Currently I work as a lecturer at the Moi University Eldoret in the department of community health. I have authored/co-authored more ten papers in peer reviewed journals. I have also attended several conferences and made presentations. I’m currently writing up some grants with some of my senior colleagues.
