Andy Guise BSc MSc PhD

Honorary Research Fellow


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.




I teach on the Health, Policy, Process and Power course organised by the school. I have previously taught on issues around globalisation, international development and global health financing. 


At LSHTM I have mainly worked on a research programme focused on harm reduction and HIV care in Kenya; this research project was part of a collaboration between LSHTM and the International HIV/AIDS Alliance. I also worked with the SIGMA group investigating the efficacy of HIV related interventions in the UK.

I am now based at University of California San Diego, working in collaboration with LSHTM, the University of Nairobi and the Kenyan AIDS NGOs Consortium. I coordinate a qualitative study of HIV care and its integration with methadone in Kenya. I am also working on a study in the USA, Canada, Mexico and France exploring contexts for initiating injecting drug use.
