Martin W. Njoroge

PhD Student

I am a Statistician and Health Economist with research interests in health equity, health systems research and economic evaluation. I previously worked at the KEMRI – Wellcome Trust Research Programme in Nairobi, Kenya where my research work involved evaluating the impact of e-health interventions in the promotion of health equity and governance in the Kenyan health system and developing a unit cost database for Tuberculosis in Kenya.

At LSTM, I am pursuing a PhD titled "Economic evaluation of health system, community - level and patient - related interventions among patients with chronic lung disease and tuberculosis" where I aim to develop novel epidemiological and econometric modelling methods to assess the socio-economic and health impact of lung health interventions at population level. Furthermore, I am pursuing an MRes degree in Global Health at Lancaster University. I have a Master’s degree in Public Health (Health Services Management) from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and a Bachelor’s degree in Applied Statistics from Moi University, Kenya.
