Jennifer Callaghan, a doctoral candidate in Health Systems, is assisting IIP researchers on quality of care of community case management evaluations in Malawi. She coordinated most of the field work, including planning and recruiting surveyors with the Ministry of Health’s IMCI office and supervising the data collection.  “Working with IIP gave me a fantastic opportunity to gain experience in field research, while learning from seasoned researchers who are great mentors.  I was able to jump into the work in Malawi, take on new responsibilities, and learn a lot about the joys and challenges of managing research projects.”
