Peter Godfrey-Faussett is Professor of International Health and Infectious Diseases at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.  After training in general medicine and infectious diseases, Peter joined the London School as a clinical research fellow in 1989 and has been there ever since.  During that time he moved to Lusaka from 1992-1998 to work with the University of Zambia School of Medicine as a lecturer, consultant physician and researcher.  His research interest on tuberculosis and HIV covers a wide range of disciplines from molecular genetics, through epidemiology and clinical trials to social science and implementation research.  After returning to Europe, Peter has worked for several major international policy organisations including the World Heath Organization, Global Fund against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and the United Nations Joint Programme on HIV and AIDS. He remains committed to using science and research as tools to improve the health and well-being of everyone with a strong commitment to equity, social justice and human rights as core values.
