Welcome to Hajra!

Welcome to Hajra Okhai, who is a Research Statistician based at the Institute for Global Health, University College London since 2018. She has collaborated on designing, analysing and publishing a range of research projects exploring HIV outcomes and co-infections using the largest, representative, longitudinal dataset of people living with HIV in the UK.

Hajra has recently embarked on a PhD which will use a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods to explore the factors contributing to the development of depression, and the barriers and enablers to accessing support and treatment to manage depression, among older people with HIV in England. Through this research, she will support the optimisation of guidelines for monitoring depressive symptoms amongst older people with HIV and ensure people are directed or referred to the most appropriate management pathway when they need help.
