Meet the latest IMMANA Fellow: Kafui Adkaye

Dr. Kafui Adjaye-Gbewonyo comes to IMMANA from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and will her approach Fellowship with a social epidemiology lens. Her previous publications have examined the intersections of economics, policy, and public health by looking at social determinants such as income and inequality on health outcomes such as depression and cardiovascular disease. Her IMMANA Fellowship project will follow some of these themes by focusing on the impacts of international trade policies on food prices and nutrition disparities. She will be based in Ghana, and will focus her research on several developing countries in Africa. Kafui is also an accomplished poet and we look forward to seeing how she brings her creativity and commitment to social justice into her research with the IMMANA programme.
