Her interests include the application of mixed methods approaches in improving the implementation of HIV treatment-as-prevention and understanding the social and structural determinants of health and health behaviors in marginalized communities.
Dr. Genberg's current research focuses on understanding linkage to HIV care following home-based counseling and testing in western Kenya. She has been involved in several projects to improve the individual and population effectiveness of antiretroviral therapy for HIV. Recently she has been involved in projects aimed at: 1) estimating and improving patient engagement and retention in the cascade of HIV care following HIV testing, 2) improving the measurement of patient medication adherence, and 3) understanding the role of conditional economic incentives in promoting medication adherence.
Dr. Genberg is also interested in the social determinants of drug use in the context of HIV prevention. She has been involved in projects aimed at understanding the impact of the social environment on long term drug use, linkage to HIV care following release from correctional settings, and the relationship between incarceration and drug use behaviors.
