Kate Bailey is working with Professor Steve Reifenberg on research related to aid through accompaniment and what works in international development. Bailey focuses on changing the narrative surrounding accompaniment. She is researching how the use of accompaniment in English differs from other language traditions to eventually help create educational materials surrounding aid through accompaniment.
I am interested in global health and international development. I am also interested in the role that community healthcare workers play in healthcare systems as well as the importance of cultural context when creating development projects.
I am currently working on writing abstracts and editing chapters for a collection on aid through accompaniment for Steve Reifenberg. I am also researching the rhetoric surrounding accompaniment and its impact on various disciplines.
