Peter Mogere

Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI) Partners in Health Research & Development (PHRD) - 2017 Fellow

Peter has been the pharmacy lead at the Partners in Prevention clinical trials site in Thika (a KEMRI site) since August 2010. He has been working in HIV research for the last 6 years with Partners PrEP study and the Partners Demonstration Project. He has provided care to those with HIV for more than eight years. Peter also performs as the Regulatory Affairs lead at KEMRI. In addition, he is the Chair for Kenya Pharmaceutical Association (KPA-Nairobi), which promotes good standards of pharmaceutical practice. Peter holds a diploma in Pharmaceutical Technology from The Kenya Polytechnic and is currently in the final year of attaining his bachelor’s degree at Kenyatta University.

Why I want to advocate for HIV prevention in 2017:

In 2012, over half (53 percent) of people living with HIV did not know their HIV status because they had never been tested or had not received their test results. HIV self-testing has the potential to increase first-time and repeat testing for HIV, which is essential to the delivery of PrEP. Reaching those first-time testers is also instrumental to achieve the UN goal to test 90 percent HIV cases by 2020. My advocacy on HIV prevention will be focused on ensuring the HIV self-testing strategy is adopted and that necessary policies are developed by key government institutions.
