Professor


Research for the sake of research makes little sense. Policies that exist just on paper do not help the lives of people. Repetition of practices based only on personal experience yield little impact. In the field of global health, the importance lies in the way in which research, policy and practice can be linked. While being mindful of such issues, Professor Jimba is particularly interested in health promotion and human security.

What factors promote or hinder health service seeking behaviors and good health practices? My research interest is to investigate such factors, both in the demand and supply sides of health services, based on insights from microeconomics and behavioral economics as well as theories and practices in the global and community health.

Efficient dissemination and implementation are essential for shortening the time to bring research findings into practice. I have been working on especially dissemination, which affects implementation. The main topic was to “epidemiologically” examine the potential of online tools (mainly online videos) to disseminate beneficial research findings. How fast can we disseminate information broadly and quickly among health care professionals? This kind of area is categorised as health communication. Sounds like there is nothing to do with epidemiology. However, epidemiology is all about revealing the association between “exposure (cause)” and “outcome (effect)” and can be applied to solving all different types of issues. I would like to continue to the second stage, implementation, to examine factors that affect behavioural change to shorten the time between evidence and practice. Not only that, I will work on varieties of global health issues utilising my knowledge and skills of epidemiology.

Even with the advent of medical technology, mankind is still unsuccessful in the fight against the ancient and debilitating disease called malaria. Past unsuccessful efforts in malaria control and eradication tell us that biomedical approach alone, which was undoubtedly necessary, was not sufficient. My research focuses on the human factor, which is sometimes overlooked compared to the mosquitoes or the malaria parasites, in the efforts to tackle malaria.
