Caroline Jones

Associate Professor

Professor Caroline Jones is a senior social scientist at the KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Research Programme in Kenya. She has a PhD in anthropology (exploring the diet, subsistence activities and perceptions of health among the Yolngu of north east Arnhem Land, Australia) and 20 years of experience working in sub-Saharan Africa on the uptake and provision of health care with attention on malaria. Much of this research has involved initiating and leading social science research projects within broader multidisciplinary public health research programmes. More recently the focus of her research has shifted to critical studies of the development and implementation of public health interventions, employing an ethnographic approach to explore the human, political and technical issues that shape outcomes. A key role in her current position is to contribute to building Kenyan and regional expertise to develop and lead such research.
