Project Title: A retrospective investigation of acute viral respiratory infections, epidemiology, clinical characteristics and associated factors in Kenya (2007-2012)

Description of the Project: Acute respiratory infections of viral origin are recognized the top leading cause of morbidity and mortality in young children, mostly in developing countries. Recent studies indicated that other age groups are affected as well.
