Jean Hunleth, PhD, MPH

Jean in ZambiaMy name is Jean Hunleth and I am a cultural anthropologist who has trained and worked in public health. My research focuses on the experience of caregiving and treatment seeking for infectious and chronic diseases. My methodologies are creative and rigorous. I use photography, drawing, and role playing as well as ethnographic interview and observational techniques. I value multiple perspectives and place special emphasis on the stories of people typically left out of health research. These stories and perspectives hold powerful implications for the delivery of appropriate and effective healthcare and medical interventions. 

I am the author of the book, Children as Caregivers: The Global Fight against Tuberculosis and HIV in Zambia.
