Carol Camlin, PhD, is a social demographer and behavioral scientist in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences, with a joint appointment in the Department of Medicine, Center for AIDS Prevention Studies at UCSF. Collectively, my research program crosses the disciplines of population studies, sociology and behavioral sciences, and has focused on examining the impacts of population mobility on HIV prevention and care outcomes. She has conducted several studies examining, in particular, the overlooked contribution of women’s mobility to the sustained HIV epidemics in southern and eastern Africa. She is Principal Investigator of the study “Understanding mobility and risk in SEARCH communities”, which examines the impact of population mobility on HIV transmission dynamics and care cascade outcomes in 12 communities participating in the Sustainable East Africa Research in Community Health (SEARCH) trial. She also leads as co-PI the study "Self-Test Strategies and Linkage Incentives to Improve ART and PrEP Uptake in Men", which tests a combination intervention to improve the HIV prevention and care cascades in a population of highly mobile men in a high priority setting (fishermen in Kenya). Dr. Camlin contributes expertise in applying mixed methods approaches and behavioral and social theory within HIV intervention and implementation studies as Investigator of several randomized controlled trials in health systems and communities in sub-Saharan Africa. She has used qualitative research methods to design mHealth interventions in Kenya and Uganda, and has conducted research on structural and cultural aspects of health services utilization and other behaviors among HIV-infected patients in the region.
