Dr. Walson is currently conducting a large, multi-center randomized trial of anti-helminthic therapy (treatment of intestinal worms) in adults with HIV in Kenya to determine if deworming can delay HIV disease progression. In addition, he is investigating the effects of cotrimoxazole on symptomatic malaria parasitemia in Kenya and is planning a large trial to evaluate the potential benefit of adding insecticide treated bednets and a point-of-use water filtration device to the basic package of HIV care in Kenya.
