Title of assignment: Chronic health effects of prolonged pyrethroideksponering among Bolivian spray worker.

  • In 2012, I was in Bolivia for three months as a part of my research year. The project was implemented as a cross-sectional study among 116 injection workers and 92 unexposed controls. The participants’ level of exposure was determined using questionnaires, blood samples were taken and participants completed a series of neuropsychological tests. My stay in Bolivia was very exciting and educational. It was a really good opportunity to get away from the books and use my knowledge in practice.
