Title: Cost-effectiveness of point-of-care testing with task-shifting for HIV care in South Africa: a mathematical modeling analysis

Monisha Sharma is an Acting Assistant Professor in the Department of Global Health at the University of Washington. She received her Masters in infectious disease epidemiology from Johns Hopkins University and her PhD in epidemiology from the University of Washington. Her research interests include mathematical modeling and cost-effectiveness analyses of HIV testing and HIV care interventions in sub-Saharan Africa. She is the principal investigator of a K01 award to design an intervention to increase men’s uptake of HIV self-testing and clinic linkage in Uganda. She is currently working on a scale-up project of Assisted Partner Notification services in Kenya and collaborates with the Institute for Disease Modeling and researchers at the International Clinical Research Center to project the impact of scaling up point-of-care viral load monitoring for patients on ART in sub-Saharan Africa.
