Kibuye Market in Kisumu Mapped!

The UCSF-KEMRI Female Migration Study team completed a mapping of each and every trader and stall in Kibuye Market in Kisumu over the past several weeks!

As of mid-year 2013, there were:  A total of 6,674 unique traders based at Kibuye Market, of whom n=4,206 (63%) were female and n=2,468 (37%) were male.

The Female Migration Study will recruit a random sample of just over 300 female traders from this population for the “phase 3” study of mobility patterns, trading locations, and HIV prevalence. The study will be offering HIV-VCT with referrals to FACES-Lumumba for those who test positive after confirmatory testing.

    As one of the study staff I want to thank the entire team for the team spirit that we put to ensure it was a success mapping kibuye market with all the challenges we faced from rain, mud, direct sunlight which made the tablets at times to be slow and the tricky one of being followed or trailed by ‘funny people’

    Once again thanks to the entire KEMRI-UCSF/RCTP family for the support you gave us and looking forward for the same as we start recruiting this Sunday.

    God bless Kenya

    Those who are stigmatize, what are their perception towards the killer disease. Those who decide to stigmatize themselves do they have feelings for their families. These are tough characters who do not go for any test. If at all they are head of a house hold, are they in possession of supporting the family in future? If so what else can be done so they go for medical test?
