"The Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI) teams in both Kisumu and Nairobi are incredibly excited about our work; it fits very well into the Kenyan national plan for reducing the burden of HIV and violence, especially among adolescent girls. With support from MCHRI through the Stanford Global Health Seed Grant Program, we are thrilled to be able to partner with them on this."
