Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Hunleth is a medical anthropologist with public health training and professional experience working in global health. Her research focuses on the experience of caregiving and treatment seeking for infectious and chronic diseases in Africa (most specifically, Zambia) and in the United States. She is especially interested in children’s experiences of and responses to illness, medicine, and health programming. Her work demonstrates that identifying children’s actions and perspectives facilitates the design of more appropriate and family-centered health interventions for children and adults. Hunleth’s approach to research is creative and rigorous. She uses ethnographic and qualitative interview and observational methods as well as participatory techniques such as drawing, role playing, and photography. Her aim is to reduce disparities and improve health care delivery through focusing on the practical knowledge and lived experience of people typically left out of health programming and policy decisions.
