Peter Macharia

Peter Macharia is currently working to develop geostatistical methods of mapping disease prevalence in presence of incomplete spatial information using school survey data with Dr Emanuele Giorgi, Professor Bob Snow, Dr Emelda Okiro and other collaborators.

It is an honour to receive the award, which I dedicate to all who are fighting to reduce health inequities at all spatial scales in low-resource settings. Peter Macharia
