Chaguo Letu (Our Choice) Project

The Chaguo Letu (Our Choice) Project ran from October 2013 – December 2014 and was a qualitative study that explored the relevance of scenario-based planning to strategic health decision making for the implementation of a cervical cancer sample self-collection program in Kenya.  Cervical cancer is considered a burden in Kenya with less than 3.2% of women having been screened for the disease.  


The project was implemented through a collaborative effort between AAH-I through its Kenya programme and Irene Podolak, a PhD Candidate from Brock University, Canada under Frederick Banting & Charles Best Graduate Scholarship from The Canadian Institutes for Health Research to conduct this study.  


Grand Challenges Canada, which supports Bold Ideas with Big Impact in global health, provided AAH-I with a CAD 100,000 grant for the project.
