In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Her primary scientific interests are in Demography, Psychological intervention, Public health, Cohort and Environmental health. Her Demography study also includes

  • Longitudinal study and related Mental health and Cognition,
  • Social determinants of health most often made with reference to Observational study. Her Psychological intervention research integrates issues from Intervention, Poverty, Health care and Confidence interval.

Her Public health research includes elements of Psychosocial, Odds, Epidemiology and Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. The Cohort study combines topics in areas such as Transmission and Obesity. Her Environmental health study combines topics in areas such as Activities of daily living, Overweight, Community engagement and Epidemiological transition.

Between 2019 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • The effects of a cash transfer intervention on sexual partnerships and HIV in the HPTN 068 study in South Africa. (13 citations)
  • The effects of a cash transfer intervention on sexual partnerships and HIV in the HPTN 068 study in South Africa. (13 citations)
  • Impairment in Activities of Daily Living, Care Receipt, and Unmet Needs in a Middle-Aged and Older Rural South African Population: Findings From the HAALSI Study. (8 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Disease
  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
  • Internal medicine

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Demography, Receipt, Socioeconomic status, Psychological intervention and Environmental health. Her work deals with themes such as Cohort, School environment, Confidence interval, Sample and Cross-cultural studies, which intersect with Demography. Kathleen Kahn has included themes like Condom, Mental health, Health care and Longitudinal study in her Psychological intervention study.

Her Health care research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Rural area and Epilepsy. Her Environmental health research incorporates elements of African population, Activities of daily living and Healthcare system. Her study explores the link between Odds ratio and topics such as Public health that cross with problems in Absolute risk reduction.
