Dr. Mojola examines how societies produce health and illness. She is especially interested in understanding social processes, mechanisms, and patterns of social organization that lead to health inequality related to gender, race/ethnicity, life course stage, and socioeconomic status. Her past and ongoing work primarily focuses on the HIV/AIDS pandemic as it unfolds in various settings such as Kenya, the United States and South Africa.
