Munyaradzi’s research interest is alcohol and substance use comorbidities with HIV. His broad interests are about integration of mental health and physical conditions ultimately closing the mental health treatment gap.

Munyaradzi developed a psychological treatment for alcohol use in PLWH and successfully trialled it in HIV care services. The delivery of the treatment was through a task sharing model.
