  1. 1. Project Evaluation in Development Cooperation : A Meta-Evaluative Case Study in Tanzania

    Author : Mikiko Cars; Jan-Ingvar Löfstedt; Roy Carr-Hill; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; meta-evaluation; social programme evaluation theories and methodology; international development cooperation; development evaluation; community based approach; actor oriented approach; participatory monitoring and evaluation; responsive-constructivist evaluation; Tanzania; International education; Internationell pedagogik;

    Abstract : The research reported here is a meta-evaluative case study of project evaluation in the context of Official Development Cooperation (ODC) in the education sector in Tanzania, where the particular focus is on capturing the relative values attached to evaluation by various stakeholder groups.Perspectives from the constructivist paradigm are adopted, implying relativist ontology, subjectivist epistemology, and naturalistic interpretive methodology.

  2. 2. Evaluation of HIV testing strategies and monitoring of immune responses in HIV-vaccinated individuals in Tanzania

    Author : Said Aboud; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis describes studies on the evaluation of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) and simple rapid HIV assays for use in HIV testing strategies in resource-limited settings and studies of HIV vaccine-induced immune responses. Peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) preparation techniques were also studied in preparation for use in the HIV vaccine trials. READ MORE

  3. 3. HIV-1 infection in Tanzania with special reference to early diagnosis in children and preparations for vaccine trials

    Author : Eligius Francis Lyamuya; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; HIV; CD4 T-cell; early diagnosis; HIV DNA PCR; incidence; prevalence; vaccine trials; Tanzania; Africa;

    Abstract : The studies reported in this thesis aimed at identifying simple, suitable and affordable assays for HIV monitoring and for early diagnosis in children, and establishing the suitability of a potential cohort for HIV vaccine trials in Tanzania. In a field evaluation of three alternative methods for quantification of T-lymphocyte subsets, we found high overall correlation coefficients (r>0. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Tropospheric Aerosol - Measurements and Modelling. Case studies in Tanzania and Southeast Asia and development of models for size resolved aerosol simulations on the regional scale

    Author : Cecilia Bennet; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Aerosol; PM; Source assignment; Chemical Transport Modelling; Model inter-comparison; Sea salt emissions and Aerosol dynamics;

    Abstract : The tropospheric aerosol is a complex constituent of the atmosphere that has impacts on health and the climate. This thesis presents five different studies from Tanzania, Southeast Asia and Europe dealing with urban measurements of particle mass and elemental composition, regional scale modelling of ozone and particle mass of inorganic aerosols and development of modules for sea salt emissions and size resolved aerosol particles with aerosol dynamical mechanisms implemented in a regional scale chemistry and transport model (CTM).

  5. 5. Prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV-1 by antiretroviral treatment and the impact on maternal health in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

    Author : Matilda Ngarina; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the results of the Mitra Plus study, including the outcome of antiretroviral therapy (ART) for preventing mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of HIV-1 in breastfeeding women and improving HIV- free survival (Paper I), treatment outcome of women initiated on ART for life (Paper II) and reasons for poor drug adherence (Paper III) in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Another study (qualitative in nature) explored women’s preferred treatment option for the prevention of breast milk transmission of HIV (Paper IV). READ MORE
