Overview

Dr. Ehrhardt's research interests include the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases, mainly in international settings, and mother-child health. Research methodology focuses on exploring evidence for clinical interventions, particularly clinical trials and comparative effectiveness research in both high- and low-income countries. In addition, chronic diseases in low-income countries (for example mental health) and the links between infectious and chronic diseases are of great interest. Here, observational study designs are used for the investigation of exposure-disease associations.

Research Interests

clinical trials, developing countries, mental health, meta analyses, infectious diseases, chronic diseases, cohort studies
