Dr Karima Manji
BSc MSc PhD
in Migration, Gender and Health Systems
15-17 Tavistock Place
I joined the LSHTM Office in Berlin in 2019, where I conduct social science research as part of a grant funded by the UK MRC Wellcome Trust Health Systems Research Initiative, that I also manage, which explores the intersection of migration, gender and effects on health systems in South Africa - the MiGHS grant.
I have an MSc in Public Health and a PhD in Public Health and Policy, both from the LSHTM. My PhD explored the role of gender-related social norms in sustaining intimate partner violence in Mwanaza, Tanzania.
Before working in research at the LSHTM, I was engaged as a research consultant for various developmental organisations and research institutes, working at the humanitarian development nexus, on applying social norms theory to prevent gender-based violence and violence against children.
I currently teach as a Seminar Leader on the Principles of Social Research (PSR) Module.
I am also a guest lecturer at the Charité University in Berlin, where I teach on domestic violence as part of the Masters Programme in International Health.
