Professor Ama de-Graft Aikins, the Principal Investigator (PI) for the Chronicity and Care in African Contexts project, was interviewed by Priya Venkatesan for a The Lancet Psychiatry profile in December 2021. The Lancet Psychiatry (TLP) is an authoritative forum for key opinion leaders across medicine, government, and health systems to influence clinical practice, explore global policy, and inform constructive, positive change worldwide.
In the interview, Professor de-Graft Aikins discussed the Chronicity and Care in African Contexts Project, what inspired her current focus on social aspects of chronic illness and systems of care, and other life stories.
She mentioned disseminating project to lay readers in a manner that can “change the way people view and respond to disease and long-term illnesses”.
