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 current research is exploring access to HIV care with people who inject drugs in Kenya in the Access to Care study, funded by the International HIV/AIDS Alliance and led by Prof Tim Rhodes of LSHTM.

As part of this ongoing work I am leading a collaboration with colleagues from the School of Oriental and African Studies and Birkbeck College. This collaboration has been brought together with funding from a London International Development Centre Fellowship.
