Andy Guise BSc MSc PhD

Research Fellow

Andy Guise's Background

I have degrees in Geography (BSc) from the University of Sheffield and Development studies (MSc) from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) at the University of London. My PhD at LSHTM studied the impact of HIV treatment and care in South Africa on nursing and primary health care.

Alongside research I have worked for non-governmental organisations and government in health policy and programme development and management.

At LSHTM I work on a research programme in Kenya and then also on developing research collaboration between LSHTM and the International HIV/AIDS Alliance.

Andy Guise's Research

My recent research has explored access to HIV care with people who inject drugs in Kenya in the Access2Care study, funded by the International HIV/AIDS Alliance and led by Prof Tim Rhodes of LSHTM. This has included a collaboration with colleagues from the School of Oriental and African Studies and Birkbeck College, with support from the London International Development Centre.

Building on the Access2Care study I am also working with a collaboration involving the University of Nairobi (see and University of California San Diego to study the introduction of methadone in Kenya, and the role it can play in HIV care.

I also work with colleagues from the SIGMA research group at LSHTM, in support of their evaluations of UK focused HIV related interventions.
