Description of Research Expertise

Dr. Yehia’s research focuses on evaluating health outcomes in individuals with HIV infection, with an emphasis on the HIV treatment cascade (HIV diagnosis, linkage to care, retention in care, prescription of antiretroviral therapy, and viral suppression), and on interventions aimed at improving the healthcare environment for LGBT populations. He has experience using public health surveillance, longitudinal cohort, and qualitative data to evaluate patient, clinic, and population level outcomes. He aspires to find sustainable solutions for improving patient care and our nation's healthcare system.
