The Cancer Tracking System (CATSystem) is a web-based, algorithm generated tool to promote guideline adherent cervical cancer screening and retention through treatment. The goal of this project is to rigorously evaluate the efficacy, implementation, and cost-effectiveness of the CATSystem to improve rates of screening, treatment, referral, and follow-up care in a matched, cluster randomized controlled trial in 10 Kenyan government hospitals (5 intervention, 5 standard of care).

NCT ID: NCT06285110 Recruiting - Hiv Clinical Trials

HIV-1 Subtype-specific Drug Resistance in Patients Failing Dolutegravir (DTG) Based Regimen

Start date: June 13, 2022
Study type: Observational

This is a prospective observational study enrolling People Living with HIV (PLHIV) who are on a Dolutegravir-based AntiRetroviral Treatment (ART) regimen and experiencing virologic failure. Virologic failure is defined as two consecutive viral load measurements of >1000 copies/mL of blood. The main aim of the study is to identify the drug-resistance mutations in the viral genome that are associated with this failure. To achieve this goal, patients fulfilling the eligibility criteria will be invited for a single study visit for the collection of blood. The extracted HIV virus will be sequenced through whole genome sequencing methods to identify the drug-resistance mutations. The study is conducted in 15-20 countries within six regions of the IeDEA cohort (International epidemiology Databases to Evaluate AIDS).

An open-label, randomized by school, two-arm pragmatic trial, will be conducted involving two study sites in Sub-Saharan-Africa (SSA), Ghana and Kenya, to evaluate safety and effectiveness of the newly developed fixed dose combination (FDC) of albendazole (ALB) and ivermectin (IVM) as a single dose to treat Soil-Transmitted Helminths (STH), compared to the standard dose ALB single dose for the treatment and control of STH (REALISE study: Real World Evaluation of an Albendazole-Ivermectin Coformulation Safety and Effectiveness). The general objectives are to validate the benefits of FDC through this pragmatic trial in a context of mass drug administration (MDA) programme to evaluate the safety as a primary endpoint and effectiveness profile as a secondary endpoint, in a large population of school-aged children.

NCT ID: NCT06281119 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Human Papillomavirus Infection

Clinical Study to Evaluate SIIPL qHPV Vaccine (CERVAVAC®) in Women Living With HIV Aged 15-25 Years

Start date: June 2024
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is the most common viral infection of the reproductive tract. Up to 80%of the sexually active females and men will be infected with HPV at some point in their lives and some may be repeatedly infected. The main burden of HPV-related disease is due to cervical cancer. Since cervical screening only detects precancerous and cancerous changes after they have occurred, HPV vaccination is primary prevention. People with HIV infection, even when effectively treated with antiretroviral therapy (ARV),are at higher risk of acquiring infection with multiple HPV types and are also known to be predisposed to a higher risk of HPV infection and subsequent CIN lesions. Vaccination of this high-risk group with HPV vaccine is highly beneficial. SIIPL's qHPV vaccine CERVAVAC®, India's first indigenous qHPV vaccine has received marketing authorization in India. The current study is a Phase 3b study to evaluate the immunogenicity and safety of two- and three-dose schedules of SIIPL qHPV vaccine in women living with HIV (WLWH) aged 15-25years.

NCT ID: NCT06266780 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Postpartum Family Planning

Impact Evaluation of a Targeted mHealth Intervention to Improve Uptake of Postpartum Contraception in Kenya

Start date: February 2, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The goal of this study is to explore approaches to improve postpartum contraceptive counseling, information, and uptake through a collaboration between the Harvard Chan School, Rutgers School of Public Health, Jacaranda Health, Jhpiego, and IPSOS, leveraging an existing mobile health platform for intervention delivery and Jacaranda's established partnership with the Kenyan Ministry of Health, county health offices and public maternity hospitals. Jacaranda's PROMPTS mHealth platform has reached over two million pregnant women and new mothers, providing them with needed, tailored information about prenatal and postpartum health along with access to a mobile helpdesk to triage users' questions. Using a targeted human-centered-design process with early postpartum mothers, we developed targeted messaging around family planning and contraceptive method options, with the goal of integrating this new content into Jacaranda's PROMPTS platform. We will conduct a randomized controlled trial with pregnant women engaged with the PROMPTS platform to determine the impact of the intervention package on information and utilization of postpartum contraception. If proven effective, the results of this intervention will be integrated into Jacaranda's PROMPTS system at full scale.

NCT ID: NCT06237374 Recruiting - Vaccine Hesitancy Clinical Trials

Supporting CHWs as Vaccine Educators: Impact of a Digital Training and Chatbot Intervention on Vaccination in Kenya

Start date: January 16, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study seeks to understand how to support community health workers (CHWs) to improve routine vaccination rates in high-need areas by testing a two-part intervention. The first part of the intervention is a digital training provided to CHWs, which includes videos and job aids on vaccine education to support patient communication. The second part of the intervention is a patient-facing chatbot that CHWs can share with their patients. The chatbot is designed to answer patient questions about routine immunization. The intervention will be implemented in two sub-counties in Migori County Kenya (Awendo and Nyatike) that Lwala Community Health Alliance has identified as high need with respect to vaccine education. We hypothesize that the intervention will increase knowledge about routine immunization among CHWs and patients, increase vaccine acceptance, intent-to-vaccinate, and vaccination rates among patients in the treatment group.
